Denise Gould
Mary thank you for your commitment and your sharing
Paisley Worthington
Yes, thank you!
Dawn McGuckin
I believe without technology the campuses would not be closed. It wouldn't be as pervasive in our society.
Denise Gould
Right... even in a relatively up to date facility... I have never LOVED the classroom setup! Many barriers and limitations.
Renata Chiaradia
I worry so much about accessibility with the current situation. Students need to learn skills to be able to function well in the current "classroom" and our K12 system does not prepare students to do so. I also think a bout instructors overwhelming learners with content, which we are seeing happen, just because they are online. So instructors need to get guidance as well. Many things to bring up here..
Sarah McKinnon
Hello! Sarah McKinnon from NSCAD in Halifax.
Lindsay Richardson
“We are not all having the same pandemic” - really spoke to me.
Dawn McGuckin
Yes Lindsay. I've been having this discussion with a lot of people in my life, including my students.
Charles Morrison
Agreed. Everyone—including our PM—has to stop saying “we’re all in this together”; that is pure fiction.
Lindsay Richardson
100% agree! We oftentimes fall into the cognitive biases that everyone is living the same life we are. It’s hard to put ourselves in other people’s shoes, so to speak.

Rebecca Horeth
Thank you!
Mary Wilson
All of the panelists have spoken to the critical importance of cultivating community connections within our colleges and universities to engage with the changes that the pandemic has brought to postsecondary education. However, I am wondering about how well we are inviting our students into our reflective activities and communal conversations about teaching, learning and assessment. Can the panelists comment on how we might better welcome our students into these important conversations respectfully, safely and productively?
Paisley Worthington
Love the image of Bloom’s X technology! Thank you for sharing

Having Community of practices are more important these days to share ideas.
Edward Logan
I teach a skilled trade {plumbing), it can be taught online. The impossible is possible.
Paisley Worthington
This ‘new normal’ might not be as temporary as we think… placements and ways of engaging in this moment might be more relevant than we realize!
Kathleen Stewart
Just a comment - many faculty feel somewhat like our students in this environment - that there is a firehose of information/tools/strategies/ etc., and we're equipped with teaspoons to manage the water. There are significant challenges for faculty in terms of technology - I've experienced an assumption that the playing field is equitable for faculty and it isn't. Just some observations that present very real challenges.
Amanda Maknyik
While post-secondary institutions can move forward in the way that we are, there are external influences such as accrediting bodies and professional organizations, who dictate learning objectives for our graduates. They need to be brought into the conversation.
Renata Chiaradia
There should be definitely less students in each class for quality education to be really of quality. I totally agree!
Leslie Dafoe
I agree, Amanda
Charles Morrison
Thanks for asking that question. I wrote down a similar question as soon as Natasha started her talk and mentioned her point #1: ‘interdependence’; that is, are students typically included in discussions of revisioning our teaching-learning strategies? My sense is that we don’t include them as much as we should, particularly given they are the reason we’re doing what we do (another irony in the academy!).
Leslie Dafoe
Exactly, Charles.
Jackie Bishop
As I listen to the various panel members, as educators we need a paradyme shift in our thinking or need to reframe our thinking to more of a focus on the rewarding the "process" of each student's learning vs the "assigning of grades" based on traditional assessments of what learning has occurred from our own lens …. vs providing more opportunities for student focused Authentic assessments of their own learning.
Charles Morrison
Bonnie, that’s exactly what my question was about in terms of objectives and outcomes. They must be the driver.
William Paul Meahan
Thanks for the excellent discussion and the thought-provoking ideas presented by all of the panellists.
