In March 2020, faculty across the nation were forced to suddenly transform their inperson classes to virtual platforms as a result of COVID-19 university closures. Virtual offerings continued throughout the 2020-21 academic year for most universities. We share our own observations gathered from biweekly meetings of AAEA’s Teaching, Learning, and Communication (TLC) section, where participants discuss best practices for remote instruction. Our paper addresses several themes, including the challenges of teaching in a virtual environment, the positive outcomes of the pivot to remote teaching, and perspectives regarding how university education may be forever altered when we return to the classroom.
