Jenny Davidson wants to give every student an A

Jenny Davidson is featured on the latest podcast Dead Ideas from the Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning.

“On March 20, 2020, days after Columbia University transitioned to fully remote teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jenny Davidson, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia, published an article in The Washington Post titled “Forget distance learning.
