Reflecting on the positive changes in PSE brought by the pandemic: Opinion


The pandemic has contributed to a variety of positive changes at postsecondary institutions, writes Simon Fraser University Adjunct Professor Terence Day. Day writes that the large-scale “experiment” of pandemic learning resulted in several improved educational practices, such as exploring new forms of learning and creating more online components. Some students found they enjoyed online courses, as they were convenient and allowed students to complete classes from anywhere, while faculty began to consider new ways to effectively engage students and improve their teaching and curricular skills. Day also reflects on the accessibility and health and wellness related changes some professors introduced to their classroom, and concludes by noting that there “has never been a more flexible time to be a student.” The Conversation Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
