To aid students transitioning to distance learning environments due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an elective seminar was rapidly deployed to teach professional skills and promote community. The seminar focused on guiding students in their development as self-regulated learners through topics including time management, wellness, and reflecting on their progress. The course was first offered during the Spring 2020 quarter. Student feedback indicated that the seminar reduced student stress, increased opportunities for peer-to-peer interactions, and delivered useful content. In Fall 2020, the course will be offered again with refined course assessment tools; course materials are posted for open access.
