The transition at the University of Edinburgh (or at least my small part in it)

We are all preparing (in UK HE at least) for that emerging reality that we will likely be teaching online for some part of the academic year 2020/2021. The work we must do over the summer to account for this reality is significant, certainly at a much greater level than our remote teaching transition in March. The shift is now around not only remote provision but a sustained and coherent online experience, one with an indefinite timeline. This involves UG and PG programmes, it involves access and bridging programmes, it involves everything we do as universities. For many, the work is underway as it is at the University of Edinburgh. For those managing this with care responsibilities, my best to you. That is herculean work. For those working with faculty unfamiliar with this new environment and doing so with humility, encouragement, and care, my best to you. For those legions of instructional designers and learning technologists out there, my best to you and your important work. For those doing all of this without access to resources and support, I am duly impressed. Hang in there, all of you.
