home’s cool

We are in pandemic. All of us. The whole world. And SFU’s instruction has moved online. For the rest of the term and the foreseeable future. It’s been over a week since the University made the decision to end face-to-face classes. I gave my HIST 319 students a week to get their bearings. And I needed time to figure out how to end the semester too. I’ll be doing narrated PowerPoint lectures, a weekly live discussion, and they will submit their remaining assignments via Canvas as we’d planned before. I am learning some new skills and feeling very strange about teaching, about the present–let alone the future–of work…and so many other things.
