Transition from Face-to-Face Teaching to Online Teaching in Times of Pandemic

Danielle Morin

Abstract—The education systems around the world have had to adapt quickly to find ways to offer university programs remotely in the face of the Covid 19 pandemic. Without the proper preparation and sufficient knowledge, instructors learned to teach online during the Winter 2020 semester to allow students to complete their courses when campuses suddenly closed as a safety measure. Normally many weeks of preparation would have been necessary to redesign a course to be efficiently offered online. This paper studies some aspects of the transition from Face to Face teaching in the Fall 2019 semester to Face to face / Online teaching in the Winter of 2020 (beginning of the pandemic) to completely Online teaching in the Fall 2020. This transition is examined in a Managerial Analytics course offered in the first semester of an MBA program at a Canadian University. A survey administered at the end of each semester reveals different levels of students’ anxiety, modification in the communication tools utilized, changes in intensity of weekly study hours and expected recollection of the material learned in the course, a year after completion. Additional variations are also observed by gender.

Index Terms—Online teaching, face-to-face teaching, anxiety, means of communication.
