CDLRA releases online learning survey results

May 19, 2020

The Canadian Digital Learning Research Association / Association canadienne de recherche sur la formation en ligne, in partnership with Royal Roads University, Bay View Analytics, and Academica Group, have released the findings of a survey of faculty and administrators’ expectations for educational delivery this fall. The survey revealed that faculty and administrators are largely envisioning multiple scenarios, with a possible need to pivot mid-term. It also revealed differences between colleges and universities, with respondents from colleges indicating that fully online, synchronous delivery was most likely, and respondents from universities anticipating an eventual partial return to in-person courses. “Considering what faculty and administrators anticipate and the early announcements being made by institutions” said CDLRA Research Director Nicole Johnson, “it is evident that online and hybrid learning will be the status quo for the upcoming academic year.” CDLRA (National)
