How are faculty and students at UGA experiencing the COVID-19 crisis?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a sudden and significant impact on almost all aspects of daily life in the United States. In higher education, instructors and students have had limited time to adapt to online learning while observing stay-at-home orders and coping with high levels of psychological and, in some cases, financial stress. To help navigate this crisis, the University of Georgia is using a novel research approach, called SenseMaker®, to better understand how faculty, staff, and students in our College of Engineering are experiencing this unprecedented time of uncertainty and change. In thisAsk Me Anything session, I will describe how we are using SenseMaker® to identify opportunities and early signs of risk in our community so that we can continue to deliver high quality educational programs no matter the instructional mode this crisis calls for.
