This paper outlines a collaborative effort to respond and support the instructional needs and concerns of teacher educators due to the challenges posed by the sudden onset of emergency remote teaching at the university level. The School of Teacher Education members formed a synergistic Remote Learning Community, developed an action plan and implemented resources including a Pop-In Mini-Conference to facilitate and address the immediate pedagogical and instructional needs to address the teaching of 600+ courses servicing over 7,500 students. The process described led to results that can address and enhance future considerations related to professional learning and teacher preparation.
