On Wednesday, September 30, the Learning Analytics Research Network (LEARN) – a research center based out of NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development – will host a virtual discussion and share data they have collected about how college students across the United States have experienced the rapid transition from in-person classroom learning to remote instruction this past spring semester due to COVID-19.

In this virtual session, Alyssa Wise, director of LEARN and an associate professor of learning sciences and educational technology at NYU Steinhardt, and Yoav Bergner, a core faculty member of LEARN and an assistant professor of learning sciences and education technology at NYU Steinhardt, will unpack the results from the survey. Their presentation will be followed by an open discussion where they will take questions.

The event will take place from 4-5 p.m. and is free to attend. Interested attendees should register at this link

With many universities employing remote and hybrid models this fall, Wise and Bergner both agree this is an essential conversation for the higher education community during these dynamic times.

The Research Survey
In an effort to better understand how students felt about the transition, while also trying to improve remote learning more generally, LEARN distributed an IRB-approved survey inviting students to complete 15 questions. Over 250 students from universities across the nation responded to the survey between late March and early May 2020, offering unique insight into the experience of this transition as it occurred.
