Days before students were scheduled to present their findings at a public poster session, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, requiring Holland to dramatically shift the final weeks of her course.
“When SFU moved all classes online, I didn't want students to miss out on the opportunity to showcase their hard work,” says Holland. “The students produced some excellent projects and I wanted that to be celebrated.”
Together, Holland and her students got creative. They turned their poster session into a virtual showcase and invited the public to tune in.
