Engineering Students' Perception of the Remote Learning Environment Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

Mon, April 12, 9:30 to 11:00am EDT (9:30 to 11:00am EDT), SIG Sessions, SIG-Online Teaching and Learning Paper and Symposium Sessions


Switching from face-to-face to remote instruction included some challenges that were unique to engineering education. Using data from end-of-semester course evaluations, qualitative data analysis with the inductive approach was used to elicit themes found in the literature and discover new themes and sub-themes from the transition to remote learning. This study used the Web-Based learning framework to guide the analysis of this qualitative study. Some of the emergent themes from this study that may be unique to engineering student evaluations are related to remote learning, technology challenges, hands-on experiences, and faculty technology proficiency.
