Consecrating the Classroom Space – in a Pandemic

Author: Amelia Uelmen

August 22, 2020

Writing on the Mirror of Justice blog, Senior Research Fellow Amy Uelmen reflects on teaching her Religion and the Work of a Lawyer seminar during the COVID-19 pandemic. Uelmen asks what it means to consecrate a virtual classroom as a new sacred space. She also considers the challenges and possibilities of using technology in online pedagogy. It is by foregrounding the question of how to honor each student as they give their input, rather than focusing on how technology can help consolidate student input, that Uelmen hopes to create a reflective learning space for her students. As the fall 2020 semester begins, Uelmen will continue to find ways to humanize and even consecrate the Zoom space.
