All this week I’m meeting with my classmates and faculty from the Doctor of Ministry program I started last year. This is our annual “residential” week, but, as you can guess, it will be “residential” only to the degree that we’re all going to be in our own residences–Chicago, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Seattle, and San Jose.
This feels like a good time to be in school. Things are changing in ways we didn’t predict and on a scale we can’t estimate very well, and systems of education are directly affected. I’m glad I’m in one for it all, to experience the effects first hand and to (ahem) learn how to adapt to them, maybe even how to take advantage of them.
People were doing education online before Coronavirus.
