Reflections on Online Teaching
To me, excellence in online teaching means to create welcoming, friendly, and accessible online learning spaces where students can engage with and digest the course material in ways that work for them. Courses in criminology cover a range of topics related to crime and society, and by times the material can be sensitive and personal. Since the Introduction to Criminology course was running in the Winter 2022 semester and within the second year of the pandemic and its extra stressors, it was additionally important to ensure that students could interact with the course, with each other, and with the instructor in ways that were flexible and emotionally safe.
As a critical criminologist, achieving a successful learning space that introduces students to criminological perspectives and literature is deeply meaningful to me, and I would not have been able to accomplish it without the support of the Trent Online Team.Stephanie Ehret
