Establishing the “New Normal” Online Classroom: Students’ Shifting Expectations About Online Learning Since COVID-19

Martha Hubertz and Alisha Janowsky (University of Central Florida, USA)

The flexibility of online classes helps learners juggle their education, careers, and family obligations, making it a staple in many colleges and universities. While in the past, course rosters consisted of a self-selected population, the COVID-19 course roster includes students required to engage in distance learning. In response, online course design has shifted from asynchronous to synchronous engagement via video conference. As face-to-face learning resumes, we must consider the impact of this year on student expectations about instruction. In this session, we discuss how students in large, undergraduate classes answered the question, “what is the new normal in online teaching?”
