Today, in episode 73, we’re joined by Dr. Laura Murphy to discuss the teaching challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. From moving classes online to the experience from a learning or teaching angle, we provide some resources for students and professors (links in the show notes below). Also, we touch on how this will impact academic research, Cultural Resource Management/Heritage Management, and the importance of a kindness centered pedagogy.
