The article reminds us that in due course we can reach a time when creativity can flourish in the midst of the most challenging circumstances. The encouragement to take time to adapt, and the three stages outlined by Ahmad (1. Security; 2. Mental shift; 3. Embrace a new normal) could feed into the way we approach our online teaching, reminding us to give our students the space and the time to transition to new ways of learning.
