    Pandemic Pedagogies and the Art of Self-Care

    And we’re back! COVID-19 had forced us to step away from the microphones so we could focus on our students, our families, and ourselves. For this return episode we’ve decided to change things up a bit and rather than focus on the teaching of our guest(s), we chose to put together a team of educators and spend some time discussing the impact we’ve observed that the pandemic has had on the world of academia. So please join us as hosts Gina and Tom welcome Becca and Kelly to the microphones for our first pandemic pedagogy podcast.
