The switch to online learning amid the COVID-19 pandemic sparked a new chapter for Florida State University. Online education is a new practice for many people and there is a learning curve that accompanies it.  With expertise in the fields of information, communication, and technology, FSU College of Communication and Information faculty have decades of experience teaching virtually. They shared this knowledge with faculty across the University with two Zoom panel discussions in April 2020. Spearheaded by CCI Associate Dean and School of Information Professor Michelle Kazmer (pictured below), ten CCI faculty members shared best practices, lessons learned, and practical solutions to assist FSU in thinking about short-term solutions and possible long-term approaches for remote teaching and online pedagogy.

Each faculty member shared their own experiences and techniques and answered questions from the attendees at the panels.
