Jesse Stommel, a senior lecturer in Digital Studies, has been interviewed by several educational outlets, including The Chronicle of Higher Education, about teaching remotely and its impact on issues of accessibility and equity. Stommel and Sean Michael Morris, former director of Digital Learning at UMW, are holding remote office hours for instructors. “We don’t promise answers, but we will work with those who show up to find creative, compassionate, generative solutions — and likely more questions,” they told The Chronicle.
