Much like everyone, we experienced major transitions in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Agricultural Education and Communication faculty and students at the University of Florida moved from regular in-person classroom-based teaching and learning to fully online education and communication environments. However, undergraduate students in AEC 4035: Communication Practices for Agricultural and Natural Resources remained positive, adjusted several of their final projects, and found ways to document COVID-19’s impacts through photo essays from different perspectives.
University of Florida students began transitioning to a completely online environment on March 9, 2020. This had varying impacts for all types of students, from learning environments, to living at home again, to possibly not being able to walk across that long-anticipated graduation stage. Danielle Randle and Eden Miller, agricultural education and communication students at the University of Florida, share the experiences of University of Florida students during the sudden transition from an in-person college experience to a completely online and distant college experience.
