Pandemic Pedagogies is a collection of interdisciplinary curriculum developed by a team of faculty across The Ohio State University’s College of Arts and Sciences, including faculty members from the departments of Dance, History, Microbiology, and Philosophy, and a Bexley High School master history teacher.

The curriculum they have designed is intended to achieve several concurrent learning objectives:

1. Help students master course material.

2. Increase student empathy and awareness of the complexities of a pandemic (past or present).

3. Introduce students to an interdisciplinary approach to studying the human impacts of a pandemic (again, past or present).
