New study explores impacts of digital aspects, household arrangements during COVID-19

November 25, 2021
A new research article by a group of researchers from around the world – including Dr Neil Guppy and Dr Silvia Bartolic of UBC – explores teaching and learning during the COVID-19 public health edicts. The research explores three research questions: how teachers and learners were impacted by their past experiences and understanding of learning technology during the COVID-19-induced pivot, how the “retreat to the household” after this pivot impacted student learning, and whether the student experience was more influenced by the digital factors or the household arrangements after accounting for instructor efforts. The study draws on the experiences of over 3,800 students and 280 faculty from nine institutions across Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. Springer (Full Text) (International)
