This Year's Theme: Distance Teaching in a Time of Crisis

Ocean wave

What have we learned during this current pandemic?  There have been technology challenges and virtual labs.  How has it changed our current teaching and how will it affect the future of education?   How can we support our students, through a pandemic and other challenges, including our students' emotional health?  And through all this, how do teachers take care of themselves?
