SHASS faculty—including two Global Languages instructors, Maria Khotimsky and Isadora Nicholas—were interviewed about their experiences shifting to online learning by MIT Open Learning.

“​What we do matters; our attitude matters; our enthusiasm and care matters. As teachers and parents, we should realize that despite the many constraints that are imposed by the virtual classroom setting, we can foster the sense of community and shared learning. My main advice is to show empathy and support, while also keeping the learning process exciting — to maintain a sense of wonder about things we teach and learn.” — Maria Khotimsky
