The rapid spread of COIVD-19 has radically reshaped the human resource (HR) management policies and practices across of organizations of all sizes across the country. Additionally, COVID-19 has had a major impact on the way in which faculty members teach our classes. In this case study I discuss way in which I responded to these changes in the courses I teach related to HR. I start with a description of the way in which COVID-19 has impacted not only the course content but the pedagogical approach I use to engage student across my classes. I describe my attempt to foster trust despite the uncertainty associated individual experiences related to COVID-19 and rapidly transitioning to a virtual classroom setting. I explain how I combined courses for instructional purposes and the way in which I pivoted the curriculum for each course. Specifically, I created time relevant podcasts for use by students across different courses while maintaining distinct learning outcomes for each course. A sample podcast is provided for those interested by contacting the author.
