The Single Most Essential Requirement in Designing a Fall Online Course

Written by Cathy Davidson, Distinguished Professor of English at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center and published on the HASTAC blog on May 10, 2020, this piece reflected on pedagogical challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. It offered a critical perspective on instructional design for instructors to consider as they prepared for the Fall 2020 semester: ". . .education is an excellent way of moving beyond trauma to a place of agency, confidence, control, community, care, activism, and contribution."

This item is part of the City University of New York (CUNY) Distance Learning Archive, a group project developed as part of Prof. Matthew K. Gold's Spring 2020 Knowledge Infrastructures seminar in the Ph.D. Program in English at The Graduate Center, CUNY, in partnership with the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate Program. The project's goal was to resist or trouble the discourse of catastrophe around the shift to online learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic by documenting the lived experiences of students, faculty, and staff across CUNY's 25 campuses. Further, the project wanted to document the moment of crisis response by taking a critical approach to educational technology.
