COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study, EdTech Hub
The COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study is a research study, implemented in partnership with EdTech Hub, to establish a better understanding of the impact of the shift to Emergency Remote Teaching & Learning in Colleges of Education following the COVID-19 outbreak and school closure in March 2020.
As a response to the COVID-19 outbreak and closure of schools, T-TEL worked with the 5 public teaching universities and the National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) to create an online B.Ed. curriculum resources hub for both student teachers and tutors, containing all course materials for Year 1 and Year 2. T-TEL also worked with NCTE, to establish a CoE e-Learning Fund to improve the Wi-Fi connectivity in 36 CoEs. Whilst access rates across the teacher education system were high due to these interventions, the COVID-19 Impact Assessment Study seeks to establish the impact of the measures put in place to improve the quality of teaching and learning during the COVID-19 outbreak and make recommendations for the future.
