Post-COVID Reflections on Unit Content, Delivery, Assessment, and Student Engagement. Volume 10 in the UBSS Publications series.
The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a period of disruptive change for the higher education industry. Delivery of material moved almost
overnight from on campus and face-to-face to off campus for students (and also for lecturers in most, but not all, Institutions) and online. Lecturers had to change their class materials to match the new mode of delivery. Assessments also changed, with many institutions experimenting for the first time with special invigilation software to support online assessments. While the cause of the disruptive change – COVID-19 – was a temporary phenomenon lecturers, administrators, and students realised that many aspects of the new framework were improvements over the traditional and formerly well-entrenched structure.
This book contains the reflections of academics and managers who lived and worked through the many changes caused by the pandemic.
It identifies new practices they believe should and will be retained, some new practices that should be retained but are under threat from
traditional ways of thinking, and some old practices that should and are being restored. Overall, the contributors suggest that the higher
education industry in Australia is better and stronger as a result of the COVID-19 experience.
