When the COVID-19 pandemic made its way to higher education in March, Jenae Druckman Cohn was prepared to be part of the pivot. As an academic technology specialist for the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University, one of the first institutions to make the wholesale switch to remote learning, she leapt into action.

“Moving to an emergency remote situation was a bit anxiety producing, mostly because I knew it wasn’t what students were used to or what they wanted,” says Cohn, who brought her expertise to the MU Teaching For Learning Center’s online “Celebration of Teaching” May 27. “This event, in addition to being a celebration, was also about forming collaborative relationships to address how different parts of campus might work together to improve the student experience.”
