You may also find this nanocourse Educating in Emergency, offered by the ICETE Academy, helpful as you consider your own institutional response to the growing crisis. This 2-hour course offers some suggestions on how to respond to an emergency shutdown of a theological school and provides an opportunity to dialogue about solutions. It is especially suitable for theological educators in areas affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, but many of the principles can also apply to other contexts of emergency.
