Continuing Education Under COVID-19
Oct 30, 2020When plans were made for Texas A&M's main campus to reopen this fall, faculty and staff were faced with a daunting task — creating safe and comfortable learning environments for all students while simultaneously navigating the ongoing health crisis created by COVID-19. In the College of Science, where active learning is often so crucial to instruction, professors continue to find innovative ways to keep students hooked, despite the ongoing challenges of a global pandemic.
