What does a TAR learning community look like during COVID-19? We will discuss how CIRTL practitioners have adjusted their Teaching as Research projects to a remote-teaching environment and the importance of community for future faculty in the wake of a pandemic. The learning community, which was meant to be specific to TAR implementation, turned into more of a support system that helped practitioners make difficult decisions and deal with difficult times. Questions to discuss could include:
- What was the original purpose of the learning community?
- What kind of support did the LC provide to the participants?
- What discussions did you have during the LC meetings?
- What were the changes that practitioners had to make?
- Did anyone decide to post-pone? Did anyone have to start again from scratch?
- What made you decide to focus more on giving space for community and discussion?
