Abstract

In the wake of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, HE lecturers were left with no choice but to deliver online teaching as a rapid response to lockdown restrictions. Certainly learning technologies present tremendous opportunity for educators and institutions to engage students in innovative ways. However, the adoption of such technologies has been dramatically accelerated in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, necessitating a huge cultural shift for teaching staff and students alike.
Qualitative, exploratory research was conducted using a solicited diary method to gain contemporaneous insight into the lived experiences of HE staff. Preliminary findings are presented which highlight the challenges of adjusting to online teaching methods and blended learning models in the wake of Covid-19. Emergent themes on the impact for both educators and learners are discussed alongside staff perceptions regarding the quality of technology-enabled learning and its role in their future practice.
