Communication educators across the world face unprecedented obstacles as they shift to distance learning as a result of COVID-19.
There are concerns about supporting current students at a critical time. Meanwhile, faculty are being told to prepare hybrid or online courses for next year. Above all, educators are challenged to offer students experiential learning and authentic assessment…and to maintain the integrity of their courses.
As educators look to technology for support, there’a an understandable lack of trust in flashy products that merely touch on surface issues involved in communication. Such so-called solutions are often made by people who are not educators. Who are not in the communications field. These one-size-fits-none programs can create bigger problems than they solve.
As communication courses migrate online, the biggest problem of going digital remains students’ loss of in-person, authentic practice of what they’ve learned.
