Detkin Lab at Home: Coordinating for Success

As students switched to a virtual learning format for the Fall 2020 semester, Zoom calls and group chats took the place of many of the day-to-day realities of in-person learning. But for educators accustomed to teaching students in hands-on settings, such as those used in electrical engineering, replicating crucial lab components was much more difficult. Given the limitations created by the pandemic, faculty members were tasked with finding a way to improvise in order to empower their students to succeed from home. Read More
