Coffee Table Conversations


How has the pandemic affected our teacher training program?  How have we helped K12 teachers and parents adjust to online learning?  What are the best ways to manage stress and stay physically and mentally healthy during the pandemic?

These issues and more were addressed in our series of Coffee Table Conversations.  This series of virtual events, available for viewing here,  are designed to disseminate the work of faculty and staff in meeting the challenges of our time.

“Teacher Training in A COVID World” was held on Sept. 22 and detailed how our faculty adjusted practices to provide optimum preparation for pre-service teachers despite limitations on field experiences.    The event showcased research on teacher experiences and several initiatives designed to support our teachers in training during COVID-19. Our commitment to helping parents cope with that always frustrating homework was evidenced by the establishment of the Aggie Homework Helpline.  This registered University Youth Program was created to provide individual tutoring for PK-12 learners and their families throughout Texas. PK-12 students can receive free support in math, English, Spanish, science, social studies, research skills, time management, organization, and more via a Zoom meeting or telephone conversation with a pair of Aggie Homework Helpers.

Maintaining mental and physical health during the pandemic was the focus of “Health in the Age of COVID” virtual presentation on Nov 10.  Faculty from our department of Health and Kinesiology as well as the College of Medicine and the School of Public Health discussed recovering from illness as an older adult, managing stress, exercise techniques, the importance of weight control, telehealth opportunities, and more.   The evening discussion included information about how the Center for Translational Research in Aging & Longevity (CTRAL) is working on alternative ways to improve rehabilitation like specific nutritional formulations and home-based and monitored exercise programs.  Participants learned how our Masters in Athletic Training students are navigating the new normal of athletic healthcare during COVID and how they are continuing to contribute to the health and safety of this population while using best practices.   A brief overview was given of Texas A&M’s Telebehavioral Care and evidence of its effectiveness.

These efforts are evidence of our work to enhance equity in educational achievement and health outcomes in education, sport, business, government, and health. We strive to use our collective wisdom to support communities in providing a superior education and quality of life through our teaching, research, and service.
