Anthony Hatcher, professor of journalism and chair of the Journalism Department, was quoted in an article about how college students and professors are adjusting during this period of social distancing and online learning.
A recent N.C. Policy Watch article about how students and faculty are adjusting to changes in higher education due to the COVID-19 pandemic includes insight from Anthony Hatcher, professor of journalism and chair of the Journalism Department.
The article, “College students, professors adjust to COVID-19 life,” highlights two students and two faculty members with ties to the state of North Carolina. In the story, Hatcher discusses his transition from in-person instruction to online teaching.
“Right now every academic is being hit with what they should do, webinars they should be watching, how they should be teaching their classes,” Hatcher told N.C. Policy Watch. “Some of us are trying to teach with toddlers at home. But just being there for the students and listening to their needs — I think that may be the most important part of our jobs right now.”
