Just last week, many of us thought that Georgetown snow days would be filled with sledding, hot cocoa and even a snowball fight with Father O’Brien himself. But Georgetown had a special surprise for us: instructional continuity! What is instructional continuity, you may ask? Well, not even all of our professors are quite sure. Below are some things we learned from instructional continuity.
Professors are truly gifted when it comes to technology. The Zoom interruptions from the tech guy were obviously part of the pre-planned lesson.
Reading an extra book and writing three Blackboard blog posts on top of completing your already assigned readings, is way more enjoyable than building a snowman or binge watching ‘Making of a Murderer’.
Lau never closes. Who knew 1970s architecture could be just as warm and welcoming as your fire place back home?
Sometimes instructional continuity is in the classroom. State of emergencies are merely suggestions to professors.
The internet moves especially fast when every student attempts to access Blackboard and lecture files at the same time.
And finally, classes will resume, Lau will still be open, professors will still be great with technology and everyone will still be on the internet! Happy first full week of classes.
