Watch: Lessons learned from quick pivots to online education

By | December 21, 2020

The winter term that begins in January will be the third term in a row that instructor David Chesney’s unique software design course will be online, and he has learned from each iteration. 

For the past decade, the U-M electrical engineering and computer science lecturer has taught Software for Accessibility, a class he designed in which  undergraduate students develop technology solutions for persons with disabilities. When COVID-19 limited in-person learning, Chesney created  an online version with a COVID-19 focus, called Software Against COVID-19. He discusses what the experience is teaching him about online learning and the future of education.
