A Qualitative Study Examining Home As Faculty Workplace During Covid-19 Self-Isolation, Lee Stadtlander, Amy Sickel

Higher Learning Research Communications

Objectives: Using the lens of the virtual workplace model, the current basic qualitative study examined how COVID-19 self-isolation affected both online and land-based faculty (working online as an emergency due to COVID-19) workspaces and work processes.

Method: A total of 20 online and six land-based faculty completed e-mail interviews both one month and 3 months post self-isolation.

Results: Online faculty were more satisfied with their home workplace, but both groups felt more negative about their online work, as they felt a loss of freedom and independence due to the isolation.

Conclusions: Findings indicated that both land-based and online faculty showed ...

Excelsior: Leadership in Teaching and Learning

In early 2020, the Covid-19 virus hit many places, including New York City, with such a force that nobody could have foreseen the events following its spread. The education system was pushed to transition itself to meet with 21st century technology. This study explores this disruption in the education system and how middle school teachers in several New York counties responded. What are middle school teachers’ perspectives and practices during the rapid switch to remote teaching?

Making The Transition To Virtual Methods In The Literacy Classroom: Reframing Teacher Education Practices, Lindsay Stoetzel, Stephanie Shedrow

Excelsior: Leadership in Teaching and Learning

In response to the COVID 19 pandemic universities and colleges abruptly closed and teacher educators had little time to move instruction from face-to-face classrooms to digital learning environments. This sudden shift created a myriad of obstacles as instructors worked to retain pedagogically sound and effective instruction digitally—while also preparing novice teachers to teach online themselves. Adding another layer of complexity was prospective teachers’ lack of knowledge and hesitation regarding technology tools, as well as how to meaningfully integrate the tools into their teaching. Facing these challenges, we as literacy teacher educators drew upon effective methods of teacher education, literacy ...

College Students’ Attitudes Towards Remote Instruction During The Coronavirus Pandemic: Future Directions, Selenid M. Gonzalez-Frey, Keli Garas-York, Corinne M. Kindzierski, Julie J. Henry

Excelsior: Leadership in Teaching and Learning

Undergraduate and graduate education students completed a survey to examine their attitudes toward remote instruction during the coronavirus pandemic. At the conclusion of the Spring 2020 semester in which all courses transitioned from a face-to-face to an online format, students, N = 93, were asked to describe what worked well in their courses in regards to their remote instruction experience and, when things did not go so well, what would have helped to make their experience better. The qualitative data were coded, and inductive analysis was used to generate categories (Johnson, 2012; Strauss & Corbin, 1998). Responses were grouped into labeled categories ...

Addressing Teacher Shortages In The Covid-19 Landscape: Viewing Teacher Candidates As Assets, Michael S. Rosenberg, Loretta Mason-Williams, Lois Kimmel, Paul T. Sindelar

Excelsior: Leadership in Teaching and Learning

COVID-19 continues to impose dire consequences on all sectors of our public education system. Many students, particularly those from vulnerable populations, are receiving reduced amounts of direct instruction and are experiencing significant losses in learning. At the same time, educator preparation programs (EPPs) are struggling to ensure that teacher candidates have ample opportunities to apply their newly acquired pedagogical skills in high quality clinical placements. In this article we describe and provide exemplars as to how teacher candidates can serve as assets to school districts as they complete their field placements. We also offer specific strategies and practices for EPPs ...

Seniors’ Anti-Bullying Project: Authentic Student Engagement (Presentation), Kirsten Madsen, Liza Franses, Emily Ayenew

Sheridan Creates

People of all ages can be bullied, yet data on bullying between older adults is lacking. To better understand and support the development and implementation of best practices for targeting bullying between older adults, the Seniors’ Anti- Bullying project was established. It began more than four years ago with a large-scale survey of older adults in Ontario, resulting in an anti-bullying toolkit that will now be implemented and evaluated in eight Seniors’ Residences. When working on such a long-term project, with many partners, implementation sites, as well as a different cohorts of student researchers, it is essential to ensure that ...

Conducting Focus Groups In A Virtual Environment: A Review Of Best Practices In Methodology (Presentation), Rosanne Brown, Shazia Akhtar, Laura Edge

Sheridan Creates

In this session, we will analyze the focus group methodology and outline best practices for data collection in a virtual context. Considerations around group dynamics, visual cues, and bias will be discussed using a comparative approach of in-person and virtual focus groups. In addition to adapting focus group practices and procedures from in-person to online, there are new aspects to take into account; video-conferencing tools and technological considerations, including issues with connectivity, distractions and privacy concerns are factors that need to be accounted for when conducting focus groups virtually. The focus of the presentation will be on best practices prior ...

The session will describe our efforts during Fall 2020 to keep our ESL Club social activities relevant for our changing student demographic (fewer international students, more domestic students with work and family responsibilities) and attract more students to attend virtual social events during a challenging time with so much fluctuation. The result was the creation of social activities that combined socialization with the means of enhancing learners’ metacognition, emotional regulation, resilience and motivation. Two of these events were a Newcomer Success Stories coffee chat and a forum presented by EAP students capturing their journey through the ESL Program. These events ...
