The overwhelming virtual student workload: Opinion

December 15, 2020
Jody Greene explores the conflict of the virtual workload: Educators have used strategies to design courses with student wellbeing in mind, but many students feel that the demands that educators are putting on them are unreasonable. Greene explains how students, who have been used to a traditional class structure, may be struggling to adapt to increased accountability and the stress of continuous low- or no-stakes assessments. Greene writes that students are experiencing the change in educational design as more work, and questions how a better balance can be achieved to reduce student stress.
