COVID-19, pandemic, teaching, pedagogy


As a tenure-track faculty member, I am always focused on the trifecta of tenure—scholarship, service, and teaching. The pressure to publish and present is constant and unending. Service requires countless hours in committee meetings and doing the work of faculty governance. Being a faculty member focused on academic and bar support requires spending a significant amount of time meeting one-on-one with students and providing written feedback. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several new stressors were also added to this already-overwhelming workload ­–a constantly changing and elongated bar prep period, the need to create new asynchronous class components and assessments for a fully remote academic year, and helping colleagues figure out the technology necessary for remote teaching and learning.
