“Reflections on COVID-19,” a free, interdisciplinary summer course, is resonating with the Canisius community and Buffalo at-large. To date, more than 250 individuals have registered for the collaborative learning opportunity aimed at helping people better understand the challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic and how we can respond with knowledge, empathy, faith and resilience. The interdisciplinary approach provides rich perspectives on critical topics that include everything from the science of disease to plagues and responses in the ancient world, and much more.
Each class (i.e. module) is fully digital (not live) and taught using a combination of PowerPoint and video presentations, recorded interviews with subject-matter experts, films, video chats and other online discussions and readings. There is no official start or end date for the course. Rather participation is self-paced and people are encouraged to sign up for as many modules as they would like.
