This chapter describes the process of supporting faculty as they moved their classes online during the pandemic. It describes how a range of professional development experiences fostered a sense of community among participants, as well as supporting their transitions to online teaching. These virtual communities enabled faculty members both to exchange information and to offer one another peer support. This experience of teaching online also prompted changes in pedagogical practices. Informed by social cognitive theory, these conclusions are supported by survey data as well as case studies.
