With campus temporarily shuttered, many students didn’t have access to the technology and resources they needed to complete coursework. So, while faculty were encouraged to maintain communication with their students, a moratorium was placed on due dates and other required coursework while the institution was closed. Once everyone returned to campus, we were then left with the challenge of cramming three weeks of lost time into the fairly rigid confines of what was left of the semester. The university was able to creatively carve out a few make-up days from holidays and weekends, but this alternate schedule didn’t necessarily jibe with the already-disrupted lives of faculty and students. As a result, many faculty—including myself—opted for moving contingent instruction online.
