In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus, Ukrainian Evangelical Theological Seminary has closed its campus and moved instruction online for the remainder of the spring term.
Faculty are contacting students in their courses to inform them about course expectations so that students can complete courses by the end of the academic year.
Our faculty have been working hard to ensure that the transition to this online format is as smooth as possible, addressing educational needs during this unprecedented time, and we are committed to maintaining a productive learning environment as we move forward.
Ivan Rusyn, UETS President and professor of Missiology, has shared his experience of teaching via Zoom stressing that time during online classes “just flies.”
According to Oleksiy Panych, a professor of Philosophy, online learning during the closure has turned out to be just as engaging (if not more) as the classroom experience.
With schools on lockdown due to coronavirus, we’re seeing new possibilities of distance learning that could be used for the benefit of our students in the future.
We are now praying about setting up a professional video studio to develop new online course content that could potentially reach new students living in remote places.
