Abstract: Faculty around the world who prepped for a face-to-face course in the Spring 2020 semester found themselves, mid-semester, with a short time frame to do a sudden shift to remote learning. For many, this quick transition to remote learning didn’t have the design practices found in high-quality online courses; however, through determination, grit, and a focus on student success, faculty shifted into remote learning and supported their students through a stressful and disruptive semester, often while feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and disrupted themselves. This session will review two faculty support programs that rapidly-responded to the COVID-19 crisis; one at a research-intensive, land-grant university and another for faculty at 58 community colleges. Lessons learned, triumphs, brick walls, and thoughts on academic continuity planning for future semesters while we have more time to plan.
