Teachers, Students, and the Pandemic: How do we Move Forward?
Abstract: Online instruction is not considered a new teaching strategy for some. However, with the recent transition to virtual learning due to the global COVID pandemic, teachers are responsible for teaching in multiple settings. In many ways teachers had a desire to create a sense of normalcy but demonstrated difficulty with the ever-changing landscape of instruction during this time. This manuscript presents findings of one research study conducted during the pandemic. The authors recommend strategies to ensure high-quality online instruction occurs based on a research study of teachers’ experiences during the transition. The focus is on strategies for instructional delivery, student engagement, and assignment/course grading themes that emerged from the study.
