Haddin Arts & Sciences Forum: Pandemic Use of Online Teaching and Learning Digital Assets & Value for Post-Pandemic Planning -- An Example from Introductory Earth Science Laboratory
Critical needs for online resources in education will likely not stop if and when the COVID-19 pandemic diminishes. Discussions now of how to enhance and modify these resources for a longer, post-pandemic lifetime may produce new benefits that expand on-ground education in ways not predictable before the pandemic. Based on his experience with the pandemic shift away from a campus classroom and the on-ground laboratory activities of identifying physical mineral and rock specimens, Dr. Scott Brande, associate professor in the Department of Chemistry, presents a perspective on different pathways for the dissemination of information during what was an unforeseeable crisis for many geoscience instructors, including his website omg.georockme.com, which he first publicized pre-pandemic in 2019.
The Haddin Arts & Sciences Forum is an interdisciplinary forum where UAB College of Arts and Sciences faculty present their ongoing research and scholarship to an audience of faculty, staff, and student colleagues from across the College. The goal is to offer scholarship that is interdisciplinary and translatable to a broad audience, celebrating and elevating the intellectual vibrancy present in the academic atmosphere of a College of Arts and Sciences.
