As we adjust to our new temporary reality in the face of COVID-19, there are many factors to consider when thinking about community-engaged class projects, remote intnerships, and online learning. Remember this quick switch in learning is likely uncharted territory for us all, including your professors, community partners, and internship sites. High quality community engaged learning isn't about logging a certain number of hours, it is about learning and being responsive to community partner needs.
