Teaching in times of crisis

While I myself feel yet completely unaffected (and hopefully will remain unaffected unless at some later time the flow of taxes to Bavarian state coffers will decline to an extend that will mean less money for us here to spend on books, paper, teaching adjuncts, pencils, IT equipment and the like) in some other places this seems not to be the case: have a look at Flavia's 2008-09-30 posting to "Ferule & Fescue": How do you teach when the world is ending? and the comments to that posting, Simplicius's 2008-10-09 posting to "Blogging the Renaissance": Off topic, but ... .

I just found out that there's quite a number of web resources and other publications dedicated to "Teaching in times of crisis"  Smiley .
 
I confess I'm a bit surprised. Don't we always teach in a time of crisis? Is there, was there any time which was not (at least in some respects) a time of crisis?
 
Anyway: There's the Vanderbilt advice, which includes the following golden precept: "Adapt your syllabus for the week following the crisis to accommodate a reduced workload." Smiley
 
On the other hand: much of what I found was written in reaction to 2001-09-11 and/or local tragedies, not comparable to mere stock exchange and banking crisis.
 
Up to now I'd consider the present crisis to fall into the category "usual crisis/crisis as usual".
