It became clear to us when COVID broke that our research is more important than ever. Researchers around the world right now are collaborating online to find solutions to this health crisis. They need to communicate and collaborate online with their colleagues. They need to connect with their graduate students online. And they’ve had to do all of this at a very rapid pace. Our MOOC supports faculty learning and connection anytime anywhere.
