As ASU continues to monitor COVID-19, the university has transitioned from in-person teaching and learning to remote options. In this challenging time, however, the collective innovation of ASU faculty and staff has demonstrated remarkable adaptability. As a method of celebrating the good during uncertain developments, the University Technology Office is gathering success stories of “remote resilience” from the ASU community. The situation globally and across the country is changing daily, but we also plan to share these stories to keep pace.

When the university transitioned to a remote modality, over 1,500 Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College students were already in place in internships and residencies at over 450 schools. A roadmap for moving in-person classes online was more clearly developed, but the nature of professional experiences was shifted even further. Amazingly, MLFTC, in conjunction with the Office of Digital Learning and UTO, quickly spun up the Sun Devil Learning Labs, a solution that “connects K-12 learners with Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College teacher candidates offering online educational broadcasts and tutoring support, depending on grade level.”

ASU Now spoke with MLFTC administrators in depth about how the effort was made to create a working prototype in six days, which was made available after a week of beta testing.
