Digital teaching and learning in English higher education during the coronavirus pandemic: Call for evidence

The Office for Students (OfS) is seeking sector input to understand the challenges faced, and lessons learned from remote teaching and learning delivery since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in March 2020. As well as delivering careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) to students and graduates, AGCAS members work in partnership with academics and teaching and learning departments within their institution to design and deliver employability and career development learning within the curriculum. Careers and employability professionals are key deliverers of online learning and teaching and it is important to share these experiences with the OfS. View the consultation here

The AGCAS Curriculum Design Task Group has drafted a response to the consultation and we invite the wider AGCAS membership to contribute their views and comment on the response. We also invite members to share their views on the following questions:

  1. How has digital technology supported the move to remote delivery of careers and employability learning?

  2. What are the cost vs quality implications of digital teaching and learning delivery in the medium to longer-term?

  3. What are the strategic opportunities arising from the shift in delivery mode for the medium to longer-term?

  4. What is the main way government, higher education provider leaders, teachers, or students could improve digital teaching and learning across the higher education sector?
