Event description
Higher education post Covid-19: Insights from Deakin’s educational research

About this event

COVID19 has had a significant impact on the Australian higher education sector. In a very short period of time all of the nation’s universities have had to rapidly move to online learning. Deakin’s long history of innovation and leadership in online education places it in a strong position to fully leverage and lead in a post-COVID19 higher education context. In 2020 Deakin established a program of educational research investigating the effects of COVID19 on learning, teaching and assessment at the University. Through a research priority setting activity three areas of work were identified as being important for Deakin’s ongoing transformation of learning and teaching practices into the future. This panel will present on the three projects that explored these areas:

  • Building staff capability in teaching online
  • Belonging and connectedness in higher education
  • Online self-regulated learning
