Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has emphasized the universal importance of and need for environmental health. As a result of the pandemic, institutions of higher education have faced unprecedented changes. Decisions to keep students, faculty, and staff healthy did not come without unintended consequences as traditional means of teaching and learning were disrupted. Like faculty, students were thrust into the virtual classroom with little to no time to prepare and reported that the mid-semester transition negatively affected the overall quality of courses, which were viewed as less engaging and less instilling of learning (Garris & Fleck, 2020).
