In the original version of this panel session we sought to explore the role of online learning in expanding the discipline of geography to two important groups: 1) undergraduate non-majors, and 2) working professionals. Given the current events of a global pandemic, which has pushed us and our students into our homes and initiated a “pivot” to online education by all, we aim to invite a third group into the conversation: 3) geography teachers, current undergraduate majors, and graduate students. Panelists are educators from a variety of online programs who have spent years understanding distance learning and how to teach effectively online. They will share their experiences teaching practical geographic skills and discuss how the online format is uniquely suited to expand the community of geography to non-geographers. The goal of the panel is to highlight some broad themes and questions identified through sustained online education practice and facilitate a broader conversation with teachers and students recently thrust into to the online environment.
