"I did not expect the amount of caring, concern and attention given by faculty in this online format. I have previously thought of the online format as inferior to in-person activities because of the lack of human connection. However, I now know that not to be true and it is still very possible to create an engaged community online with people you have never met because of the ability of the instructors to fully engage. Despite the variety of different topics discussed, at the core of each of these sessions was the modeling of the human element of teaching. The passion for their topic, the interest in discussing further, the respect for students, and the genuine curiosity in the opinions of others are evident."
