Teaching during a pandemic: What I learned about teaching that transcends location

Teaching during a pandemic has been no easy feat.  Have our teaching priorities, strategies, and passions changed since the pandemic? For most of us, the experience required us to change our teaching modalities, methods, or tools. What lies ahead? As we look forward to coming together in the fall (hopefully face to face) for Faculty Development Day, it’s time to honor the teacher in each of us, to reconnect with our individual and collective teaching identities, and to share our stories and practices.
