With the disruption caused by COVID-19, the higher education community has begun to share resources and ideas for successfully transitioning to the “new normal” of teaching.

Specifically, I provide suggestions for shifting our teaching mindsets to be growth oriented so that we can successfully provide instruction to students despite the challenges imposed by COVID-19.
