Understanding the student experience with emergency remote teaching
written by Bethany R. Wilcox and Michael Vignal
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, colleges and universities transitioned in-person instruction to a new modality we refer to as 'emergency remote teaching' (ERT). As many instructors may be facing this same format in future semesters, and in response to future emergency events, it is important to understand the student experience with ERT in order to inform recommendations and best practices that can be used to improve instruction. In this manuscript, we report on preliminary findings from a survey administered to physics students at a large research institution to gain both qualitative and quantitative feedback on what approaches to ERT are being used as well as which were perceived as most effective at supporting student learning. Here, we present four initial themes relating to: interactivity and student motivation; lecture format; exam format; and new challenges experienced by students as a result of ERT. These findings have significant implications for instructors with respect to optimizing ERT.
