The Learning Made Easier Podcast – COVID-19/Teaching in Transition Special Episodes
When COVID-19 hit, Adam and Dinur began to release episodes dealing with the specific issues it created for teachers and students. You can find those episodes linked below.
Our Teaching in Transition episodes, which outline how teaching has changed, and has to change, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, were originally “the COVID-19 special episodes,” until we realized we were mainly talking to teachers about how our lives and professions have changed – that is, teaching is now in transition.
