TRACK I: Faculty Resilience and the Coronavirus

As the outbreak of the coronavirus upends colleges across the nation, how can faculty members continue to teach, conduct research, and work together? How do they take care of their students while also taking care of themselves? What are the tips to quickly shift an entire class online? These virtual forums hosted by Ian Wilhelm, a Chronicle editor, and Bryan Alexander, a leading higher-ed thinker and futurist, will provide the latest updates on how colleges are responding to the emergency and how faculty members — including nontenured professors and adjunct instructors — are being affected. The forum will include an expert panel and also provide an open discussion for attendees to ask questions, share advice, and provide support to one another during a tumultuous time.
