Insights from Spring 2020 Remote Instruction: Results from surveys on remote learning and teaching
CEE conducted parallel surveys of students, instructors, and TAs after the first-ever quarter of remote learning in Spring 2020. The goal was to find what practices, resources, and tools were most helpful for successful emergency remote instruction. Instructors and students agreed that engagement was the greatest challenge of remote instruction, followed by equitable assessment and stress or personal challenges. Both groups, as well as an independent survey of advisors, recommended flexibility and clear communication among many other ideas for ensuring excellent learning in the remote environment.
