“This is just a great example of some of the innovations that people are thinking of in order to serve emerging needs that are coming out of the pandemic.”

Winona State University continues to provide new opportunities for students to keep learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Students at WSU are currently catching up, keeping up or getting ahead with the university’s addition of a J Term. This interim semester is providing a variety of online classes during the WSU winter break. J Term classes are being provided to help students who may be feeling behind due to the challenges of the ongoing pandemic or who are looking for an opportunity to fast track their education..
Reporter Jeremy Wall of KIMT 3 News recently spoke with Heather Dieterman, Assistant Director of Adult and Continuing Education, about how this new interim semester was designed to help provide students with extra opportunities. “This is just a great example of some of the innovations that people are thinking of in order to serve emerging needs that are coming out of the pandemic,” she explains.
Wall also spoke with Dr. Nancee Quinn, a professor with the nursing program at WSU-Rochester, who is teaching a J Term course titled “Workplace Aggression: Help for Healthcare Workers.” Quinn is taking the opportunity to include non-nursing students in this seminar since the J Term offers students the opportunity to try classes that might not fit their schedule during a regular semester. “This ties in very nicely with where we’re at now in the healthcare world and the business of the pandemic,” she says. “It’s also a great class for them or anyone interested in healthcare about how to deal with healthcare today.”
