Christopher Hromalik, Onondaga Community College (NY), provides reassurance to take the pressure off yourself and think of these first weeks as creating emergency sub plans: likely not your best teaching, but definitely helpful and comforting to your students to keep the learning happening. Each week, students and instructors alike will improve and can start to use more technologies to teach online in more effective ways.
