Learning Through the Pandemic: What can the COVID-19 pandemic teach us about ourselves and our world?


The Pandemic Teaching Initiative is a library of publicly accessible educational modules that explore the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic is causing unprecedented disruption to our lives and social systems. Through these disruptions, the pandemic provides a lens through which we can deepen understanding of ourselves and our world; it also provides an opportunity to reimagine how our society could be. The modules, which contain the equivalent of a week’s content for an academic course, explore topics related to the pandemic in fields ranging from economics and political science to literature and philosophy. All modules are freely available on this site and in Canvas.
