Jody Greene – The Great Reset: University Teaching and Learning after COVID
July 12, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm | Virtual Event
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many permanent changes in college teaching and learning. The pandemic has not only precipitated but also accelerated changes already underway at UCSC and elsewhere—from technological enhancements to trauma-informed teaching. Join Professor Jody Greene
in conversation with Stephanie Chan, UCSC alumna and Foothill College professor. Chan and Greene will discuss UCSC’s history of educational innovation and what teaching and learning might look like post-pandemic. The audience will have plenty of time to engage with Chan and Greene and ask questions.
