Observations on the COVID State of Higher Education

Full Facepalm re: 2020 f2f instruction in 3… 2… 1…

I have always described myself as a lazy academic, particularly when it comes to teaching. If I’ve made innovations, it’s because they save me time and effort, first and foremost. When I or colleagues get super stressed from the drudgeries of academic life, I remind us: we’re not medics. If we screw up, no one dies.

EXCEPT NOW HIGHER EDUCATION IS SCREWING UP, AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE.
