Broader Online Communities

We encourage you to sign up for the Fordham teaching listserv run by Anne Fernald, Professor of English and Special Advisor to the Provost for Faculty Development. You can sign up from the listserv by filling out the Teaching listserv form.

(This has become a very active community in recent days and the influx of emails can at times feel overwhelming. To bundle updates into a daily digest, go to the teaching group located in your Fordham gmail account's Google Groups page. Click on “My Settings" in the upper right corner, select “Membership and email settings” and customize your email delivery preference.)

The blog The Philosopher’s Cocoon has a running series on transitioning to online education in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. While the site is geared for graduate students and early career scholars in philosophy, this series has a lot of useful information for educators in any discipline and can be a refreshing resource for solidarity.

Reddit has an r/Professors subreddit where faculty from all over the world share their experiences. It is a very useful resource for crowdsourcing solutions to problems, as well as finding an online community to share your experiences.

Fordham’s Graduate Student Association has a Slack page that includes a channel for information and commiseration regarding online learning.
