Losing the elearning safety net: Teaching an MBA class without an educational technician

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The forced transition caused by the safety lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic imposed “emergency eLearning” on many university faculty members. This transition had many facets including moving away from face-to-face instruction to fully online and hybrid or blended forms of eLearning. For programs that were already leveraging blended teaching, using simultaneous synchronous and asynchronous teaching in the same classroom, the major change was the loss of an educational technician to operate and monitor the technology used for these hybrid teaching models. This paper outlines some of the changes required to navigate this transition and the positive and negative consequences associated with this forced move to eLearning.
