OCUFA survey finds students, faculty negatively impacted by online learning

November 25, 2020
A new survey, commissioned by OCUFA, indicates that most university students and professors believe that the online learning experience is negatively impacting postsecondary education. According to a survey, 62% of students and 76% of faculty indicated that online learning has a “negative impact on education quality.” Students stated that they felt online learning negatively impacted their ability to learn material, while faculty indicated they found online learning impacted their teaching abilities. “This poll illustrates to universities — it’s a wake-up call — students do not like it,” said Nipissing University English Professor Gyllian Phillips. “They do not like remote instruction, faculty do not like it. It’s not as effective as in-class.” The Star | OCUFA (ON)
