Hybrid Learning: The Future?
Exploring Students’ Study Preferences and Perceptions of Hybrid Learning
The COVID-19 pandemic forced an abrupt alteration in how teaching was delivered across all levels of education and all parts of the globe. For an extended period, almost all learners were unable to attend school or university, and educators had to adapt to deliver lessons online.
Hybrid Learning: The Future? Exploring Students’ Study Preferences and Perceptions of Hybrid Learning, developed in collaboration with the Times Higher Education (THE), was designed to gain a better understanding of students’ experiences of online and hybrid learning, as well as exploring their study mode preferences and any experiences of digital poverty. Nearly 700 students from 15 countries participated. This report covers the following:
- Study preferences
- What students like about online and hybrid learning
- What students dislike about online and hybrid learning
- The importance of flexibility and diversity to better meet student and staff goals
