The nonprofit association EDUCAUSE has released two reports on a study conducted in Fall 2020 about students’ pandemic experiences with:
- Connectivity and technology.
- Learning with technology.
Both reports can be accessed for free here.
What for me was the most telling part of the second report:
“students learning experiences were undermined in myriad ways by poor decisions in the delivery and management of courses. On the pedagogical side, students complained of long lectures with massive slides decks . . . assignments with little scaffolding or connections to learning outcomes . . . and generally trying to replicate face-to-face experiences in online learning environments.” (italics mine)
