After acknowledging racism as that other major pandemic we must fight, host Kevin Patton carries on with even more practical tips for teaching remotely—and for taking with us back to campus. Included are tips for creating and using a home office, even when there is no room, and advice on using our office space as a media studio. Plus a brief apology.

    Our second Journal Club episode pops in sooner than expected with a mind-blowing study that shows that when faculty believe that student ability is fixed (not flexible), under-represented minority students do not perform as well as in STEM courses taught by faculty with a growth mindset. Journal Club director Krista Rompolski joins Kevin for an important discussion.
