Searching for Normal
September 21, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
So much has changed in Higher Education since the start of the pandemic. What conveniences have you enjoyed? What have been some of the challenges? Will we reevaluate what’s important to us? Will the progress we’ve made during this time be undone?
What is “normal”? Is “normal” even normal anymore?
Based on the article, Let’s Not Return to Normal When the ‘New Normal’ Finally Arrives, by Morton O. Schapiro, this session will center around a robust discussion of “normal” in higher education and our lives in academia. Additional thoughts and insights from the Steven Mintz article Let’s Not Return to the Old Normal will be incorporated, and insights from Sophia Rosenbaum’s article Dear Normal: Were you really that great in the first place? will be integrated. Come prepared to share, discuss, and question.
