Like most professors, I was thoroughly unprepared for the abrupt shift to remote learning. I attended CIP workshops, conferred with colleagues and students (particularly my invaluable student associate Max Green, senior physics major and Math/Science Skills Center lead tutor for modern physics), and scrambled hard for the past 7 weeks to make the most of what I could do to support my students' learning. I'm contributing three handwritten pages of notes I made as thinking/working documents in this process. 1) ideas, principles, and thoughts on redesigning the modern physics course I was teaching for first-year students; 2) notes on how to record, edit, transfer, and compress video lectures (hard-won instructions for an old dog learning a new trick!); 3) my log of videos made for the modern physics course. I produced typed versions of 1) and 3) for distribution, but the handwritten ones represent the real process better, scribbles and all. I hope someone gets a chuckle out of what I recorded and thought to archive out of all this mess!
