Handbook on Facilitating Flexible Learning During Educational Disruption

As COVID-19 continues spreading in many countries of the world, how to keep learning in disruption has become a major challenge to the global education community. As stated by UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay: “We are entering uncharted territory and working with countries to find hi-tech, low-tech and no-tech solutions to assure the continuity of learning.”

In this regard, UNESCO IITE is joining forces with UNESCO INRULED for a new Handbook on Flexible Learning during COVID-19 and released a special publication entitled “Handbook on Facilitating Flexible Learning During Educational Disruption: The Chinese Experience in Maintaining Undisrupted Learning in COVID-19 Outbreak”.

Publication is available here

Keeping the doors of learning open COVID-19

Technology makes learning truly meaningful. Doesn’t matter whatever condition or crisis we are in, we can keep ourselves in learning if we use technologies meaningfully and continue our teaching-learning staying at home. Let’s not allow Corona to stop us from learning! The Webinar on 30th March (31st March in Asia Africa and oceanian region) will give us an understanding on the essentiality of OER in TEL implementation. Register soon – it’s free.
Link to register: https://colsurvey.limequery.com/284895?lang=en

Some guidelines to consider include:

  1. Institutions should take emergency policy decisions to adopt alternative ways of teaching, including online learning.
  2. Ensure that learning is delivered using ICT tools such as radio, TV, mobile devices so that no learner is disadvantaged.
  3. Identify and use existing OER to provide quality learning.
  4. Develop and implement strategies for synchronous/asynchronous approaches.
  5. Encourage teachers to use free resources such as MoodleCloud to conduct online classes.

Moving to Online Learning

The 2020 Covid 19 pandemic means that universities need to quickly move to online learning. Rapid changes are needed so that teaching and assessment which traditionally was carried in in-person can happen at a distance. Below we provide some guidance and resources to help educators make this move. Our aim is to keep the approaches as simple as possible, to minimise stress for educators and students.

The Conversation

Coronavirus: universities are shifting classes online – but it’s not as easy as it sounds education more accessible, affordable, interactive and student-centred. However, the way that it is being presented as a simple and practical solution, capable of replacing face-to-face teaching for a significant period, is misleading.

Online education is a complex endeavour. It is important to set realistic understandings and expectations of how it can support students affected by coronavirus measures. This is especially the case for universities that disregarded online education before the coronavirus outbreak.

Both academics and students may lack the training needed for quality online learning. Normally, developing online courses involves a team of experts including academics, instructional designers, programmers and illustrators. The team will collectively follow systematic design processes. Yet in this quick transition, academics who have never taught online will be offering courses that have not been devised in this way.

Dublin City University, National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL)

This page provides links to a number of useful internal and external resources that have been produced over the past few weeks to support institutions and individual educators to respond to the spread of the Coronavirus. More specificially, the resource bank aims to share the advice of other educators to help both schools and higher education institutions harness the potential of online education as an important part of continuity planning. Our team is updating this page on a regular basis and welcome any suggested resources for inclusion.

Our preparations in the NIDL for the prospect of restricted campus access began in earnest on Sunday, March 8th, when we first produced our “Keep Teaching” guidelines for DCU staff. On Tuesday, March 10th, we produced a similar “Keep Learning” guide for DCU students. Over the next few days we developed and facilitated a series of additional online professional development events for staff, including two workshops on “The ABC of Teaching Online” and several “Using Zoom for Teaching” sessions. There was a large response to these workshops and no doubt they contributed, coupled with our considerable experience of online education through DCU Connected, to the relative smooth pivot on Monday, March 16th, to fully teaching online.

How COVID-19 is Changing Higher Education

The spread of the coronavirus has affected colleges and universities in the US and abroad, and it’s impacting the way campuses operate, how faculty members teach and the travel of staff and students. In this developing situation, things are changing quickly, and there’s a lot at stake. 

Some of the topics that will be addressed in this webcast include:

  • How quickly the crisis developed, forcing institutions to act with speed.
  • How colleges are facing numerous changes to the ways they recruit and retain students.
  • How colleges are changing the teaching environment from face-to-face to online.

Inside Higher Ed editor Scott Jaschik and reporter Elizabeth Redden will lead a lively discussion on these topics on Thursday, March 26th, at 2:00 pm ET.
