As a result of the sudden shift from in-person to remote course delivery, brought on by COVID-19-related restrictions, a “pandemic pedagogy” emerged (Andrew A. Szarejko, Pandemic Pedagogy: Teaching International Relations Amid COVID-19, 2022) which saw instructors and students teaching and learning in ways they had never experiences before. Instructors supported students by learning on tried-and-true methodologies, but largely by reinventing themselves, reinvigorating curricula, and elevating their pedagogical practices. Through a variety of digital-learning tools and innovative methods of interaction, instructors created remote learning environments in which students persevered by remaining engaged, productive, and critical. 
During this roundtable, presenters from across all disciplines are invited to discuss:
How they navigated Pandemic-related changes and challenges. 
How particular practices which began as placeholder solutions during the shift to remote learning have since become reusable and sustainable pedagogical tools, not contingent on mode of delivery.
Experiences and successes that will inform teaching practices going forward. 
The overall interest and need for more flexible learning models (offering more online and/or hybrid courses) in colleges and universities. 
Considerations on what used to be thought of as an ideal learning space versus how those considerations have shifted/are shifting.
The future of brick-and-mortar classrooms.
