Community-Engaged Teaching in a Time of Trauma

Community-Engaged Teaching in a Time of Trauma is a video series documenting the unique experiences of UVA faculty who taught community-engaged courses in Spring 2020. Faculty share their reactions to teaching during the pandemic, as well as their reflections on the challenges, outcomes, and unexpected opportunities of transitioning their courses online midway through the semester due to COVID-19. They discuss lessons learned to offer insight and inspiration to other instructors who may find themselves in similar situations, or who are grappling with what it means to be a community-engaged teacher in our time of trauma. Faculty featured are in the Batten School, School of Architecture, School of Nursing, and the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
