Essay/Prompt Ideas: 

    • Write an essay on the impact coronavirus had on their experience and the impact they foresee the pandemic to have on the industry.
    • Articulate how their industry (or company specifically) could lend aid during this world crisis? How would that company/industry go about initiating that help? What resources would they need and what ramifications or benefits would these actions have on the company/industry?
    • Respond to the new reality many people are facing in working remotely. What impact does this have on the company/industry you work for? What has been your personal experience with this new work arrangement? What are the benefits and challenges?

Virtual Assignments: 

    • Have your student set up a virtual meeting for the two of you to discuss their experience. It is the student’s responsibility to choose a technology platform to use and ensure both parties are able to access and participate in the virtual meeting. (*This is a great way to allow students to utilize new technology and show off their professionalism and organization skills.)
