Post-covid-19 Education Project in Resource
The preliminary results of the post-Covid-19 education project conducted by the Education and Learning Sciences (ELS) group were published in Resource on March 16th, 2022.
As higher education institutions are gradually going back to the normal situation, WUR is interested in understanding how students’ and teachers’ well-being and stress have evolved in the academic year 2021-2022 and learning about preferences, needs, and wishes for the longer term with respect to on-campus, blended, and online education.
The survey was spread among both WUR students and teachers in February-March, 2022 and over 500 students and almost 300 teachers responded to the survey. The preliminary results showed that both students and teachers were highly motivated in the academic year 2021-2022, however they experienced a high workload. While students experienced less stress in the academic year 2021-2022, teachers reported high stress. Students reported that they more prefer face-to-face (48%) and blended (43%) education than online education (9%). The final report is expected to be published in mid-June, 2022.
