I’ve come to appreciate – Spending more time with my husband and cat at home in Huntington, WV. I have been spending less money because I cancelled all travel plans and I don’t eat out.
My challenges & solutions – The learning curve for new technology was steep, but we are doing our best with the available tools. For instance, recording, editing, and downloading lectures. I am also experimenting with 3D anatomy software that I learned about on Anatomy Connected. I will continue to use some of the new software even after resuming face-to-face instruction. Another challenge has been administering exams remotely, especially lab exams. How do you structure the questions to make the students think instead of just opening their notes to check the correct answers?
My research & COVID–19 – I cannot go to the lab to collect data or use a computer with high processing capability. I am using this time to analyze existing data at home and prepare manuscripts.
