Educators and students transitioned to online and remote teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic that began in spring semester 2020. Reflection and analysis of a faculty member’s experience from the perspective of communication, using tools and technology, shed light on one such lived experience around the themes of connection and isolation. The role of mediated communication is used as a lens to examine what occurred and continues to occur as each student and faculty member adapt to modified classroom experiences, particularly in the remote learning environment. Through this reflection, there is an exploration of the opportunities for growth from these challenges to strengthen both teaching and learning.
