It is undeniable that COVID-19 has altered the higher education landscape, and that the reshaping of teaching and learning continues to dominate the minds of higher education leaders.
Now the period of emergency online teaching is coming to a close for the majority of universities worldwide, it is time for institutions to decide on the future of their course delivery. For many, this will be blended learning – a combination of face-to-face, on campus teaching, and online teaching. The introduction of blended learning may cause some of your staff and students some concern, particularly given the tight timelines. But the implementation of tech doesn’t need to be cumbersome and slow. It doesn’t need to cause problems for your teaching staff. And it certainly does not have to diminish the student’s experience. With the right support and tools, technology can have the potential to provide quick wins that enhance the student experience, and even improve learning outcomes.
