|Faculty Share Insights on Teaching during a Pandemic|
|When the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted in-person classes last spring, several faculty found innovative and creative ways to adapt to new ways of teaching and learning. In the first of a fall-semester series, we’ll be highlighting ways faculty from various departments are coping with teaching during a pandemic. In this issue, we spotlight Naho Maruta from the College of East Asian Studies; Alison O’Neil from the Chemistry Department; and Ron Jenkins from the Theater Department.
Following the CT Governor’s announcement that University Research Labs could open as part of Phase I, and the tremendous efforts by the Wesleyan Facilities Staff and EHS, we are open! The Summer Undergraduate Research Program may be canceled, but those that are here are up and running. 🙂
Congratulations to Matt Huston, Jacob Greene, Dani Moreira, and Sydney Taylor-Klaus!
This summer Dani worked at NIRH working on Health Policy. One of her main roles was as a researcher on the Local Reproductive Freedom Index. The LRFI evaluates 50 major cities in the US and gives them a score out of 5 stars on the reproductive health care/ access to health care. The LRFI was just published Monday October 21, 2019.

Lab meetings will be held on Tuesdays from 12:10-1:10pm. Everyone is welcome to attend. Email Prof. O’Neil for location as it sometimes changes.
There has been a huge outpouring of interest in joining the research team. To accommodate everyone, I am holding an informal info session tomorrow, Wednesday 9/5, at 5pm in Hall Atwater Rm37. See you there!
The lab is really coming along… all of the lab benches and storage are installed. The sinks even work!
