Many of us were asked to transition our undergraduate and graduate courses to online instruction this spring and summer with little preparation or support, and it’s possible that we will be expected to do the same thing this fall. The Mycology Teaching Symposium will include best practices for online teaching, resources for online educators, and advice from mycologists currently overcoming the various challenges encountered when teaching online. We look forward to collaborating with and strengthening our mycological community to best serve our future students.
