The academic experience of digitally enabled learning during Covid-19

During January and February Wonkhe and Aula collaborated on a survey of academics and professional academic support staff to understand the experience of delivering digitally enabled learning and teaching during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The academic voice, and that of the professional staff supporting learning and teaching, will be essential to shaping digitally-enabled learning and teaching post-Covid. We know quite a lot about the student experience, but much less about that of the people who make the teaching and learning happen.

The survey explored academic views of digital capability and confidence during the pandemic, sources of advice and support, changes to courses, views on student learning, and priorities for digitally enabled teaching and learning post-Covid.

At this free event, we’ll share the findings and discuss their implications for learning and teaching strategy and practice with our expert panel.
