Student Perceptions On Variety of Class Types Due To Covid-19
Due to the global emergency caused by COVID-19, starting March 2020, in-person college instruction at a teaching institution moved suddenly to full, 100%, online, which caused mixed feelings to both professors and students. Moving into fall semester, the institution took a significant number of COVID-19 preventative measures suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) such as mask wearing and social distancing, and organized three types of classes; fully online, hybrid (online and in-person instruction), and traditional in class learning. Many students are currently enrolled in more than one of those class types. This paper describes those three class types during the COVID-19 pandemic and focuses on the opportunities and challenges of each from the students’ perspective. The ultimate goal is to determine which pedagogical approaches are the most effective during a pandemic.
