Resilience and Adaptation in Undergraduate Education During COVID-19
Wednesday, May 11, 12:00 pm – 12:50 pm
What kind of losses did undergraduate students incur during the pandemic? Findings from a state-of-the-art measurement system used at UC Irvine will be presented to highlight resilience and adaptation in the context of the COVID-19 public health crisis. While students were able to continue making academic progress at close to pre-pandemic levels, what might they have lost in terms of human development? What were the effects of remote instruction? Of the absence of vibrant interactions on campus? What can we learn from the experiences that might help us better serve students from diverse backgrounds in the future?
