English prof reflects on remote teaching and Wawa pretzels

Kara Clevinger, via Zoom of course

Students often learn best when they learn from each other. Kara Clevinger is making it happen, despite a global pandemic.

Or more accurately, because of a global pandemic: with the temporary shift to remote teaching, the assistant department head adopted methods that are inspiring students and educators alike. Clevinger is playing to strengths of the online realm, bringing students together for courses-she teaches composition and 19th-century American novels-and also the human connections people need to be healthy, especially in a time

of isolation.
