Pandemic Pivot: The Faculty Experience After Two Years of Challenge

In the summer of 2020, we investigated what our two-year colleagues had done to cope with the stress of teaching during the pandemic. We followed up with our colleagues this past fall to investigate their ongoing experience. We will present what was learned and offer recommendations for navigating what lies ahead, including specific skills to help cope with the stress of professional roles at community and technical colleges.

Note: The initial findings of this study were shared in a previous NISOD webinar in January 2021, available to NISOD members in our webinar archive here (You must have an individual account and log in to access it.)

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. After attending this session, attendees will be able to meaningfully reflect on their own pandemic pivot.
  2. After attending this session, attendees will be able to describe risks of burnout they might experience on their own campuses.
