Spring’s abrupt shift to remote learning offers lessons for the fall

Joan Saab, University of Rochester professor and CURT committee member, lectures a class

Faculty members are using the lessons of last spring’s abrupt shift to online education to better prepare for the fall.

Joan Saab, vice provost of academic affairs and Susan B. Anthony Professor of Art History and Visual and Cultural Studies, is among the CURT members providing holistic guidance and strategy for the University’s fall planning.

“We were responding to the circumstances,” says Saab. “For the most part, the classes being taught were not designed to be taught online. There is a big difference between having an online class and taking a class online.”

This fall, many professors will be taking a more intentional approach to online learning. Saab will be helping faculty think about that shift.
