Feedback form is now closed.
The interruption of the Spring 2020 semester and the need to “pivot to online” in the face of the coronavirus crisis posed extraordinary challenges to all institutions of higher education in the U.S., but these challenges were magnified in small liberal arts colleges where the distinctive nature of the educational environment has long revolved around face-to-face interactions and deep engagement between students, staff, and faculty. Illinois Wesleyan University presents a program in process in which librarians, IT professionals, and faculty have come together to support online learning that continues to reflect our core commitments to teaching, learning, undergraduate research, and community engagement, and highlights the opportunities inherent in the crisis to promote greater faculty engagement in online learning, use of technology-enhanced learning spaces, and support for one another as part of a strategy to support continued innovation post-crisis.
