ASHLAND, Wis. – Northland College in Ashland is offering a virtual course examining the ongoing coronavirus global pandemic.

The four-week course is being taught by 15 faculty members.

The class will go over the history of pandemics, public health principles, and the biology of the virus.

The goal is not only to think outside of the box in the course curriculum, but also to help people fully understand the global impacts of the pandemic.

“Everyone is experiencing this in real-time. It’s such a new and novel moment. Our daily life has been put on pause and changed,” said Assistant Professor of Outdoor Education Evan Coulson. “We feel our students, faculty, staff, and even members of the community can likely understand this moment by thinking about it and discussing it.

The course is also being made available to community members for free.

About 80 Northland College students and 200 community participants are registered for the class.

Registration will remain open through Friday, for anyone in the community interested in joining the course.
