Evaluating the transition to emergency online teaching

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


In 2020, in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, universities across the world made the transition to emergency online teaching. At a public university in South Australia, training was offered to staff on how to use the university's preferred online platform. However, there was little time for staff to consider how to amend their teaching techniques to connect with students for effective learning. Meanwhile, students found themselves physically isolated from their peers, tutors, and university infrastructure. Our survey results explore the human experiences of students and teaching staff during this period of adaptation, focusing on what can be learnt for future.
