Here’s a wonderful series by #lcmartist VIDHYA NAGARAJAN called “Finding our Way” for University of St. Louis, Washington Magazine. It was for a great article on how students were coping during the pandemic. Read a bit more here…
Finding our way:
The university develops a new “curriculum” to help members of our community cope during the pandemic.
How to calm difficult emotions. Stay motivated. Fight Zoom fatigue. Stay safe. Breathe away panic. Teach — and learn — remotely. Be there for a friend who is quarantining. Balance home and work-from-home. Manage the tech. Take yoga online. Continue with professional development. Combat loneliness. Manage uncertainty. Remain tolerant. Stay mindful. Stay purposeful.
There was a lot to learn last spring, and in response, Washington University swiftly developed new tools, a “parallel curriculum.” Sometimes practical, sometimes existential, it offered resources for students, faculty, staff, anyone who needed help coping with the pandemic and the ensuing changes.
