Online vs In-person Learning
In March 2020, all 64 SUNY campuses were shut down due to COVID-19. Classes swiftly switched from in-person to online. Students were attending classes only through phones and laptops. This rapid shift affected not only students but faculty and staff as well. Everyone was forced to change their known way of learning and teaching to adapt to the new normal. Now in 2023, students are back in the classroom, but in-person learning isn't the same as it was prior to COVID.
When campuses were fully remote, we saw the positives and negatives of remote learning. It became clear that in-person learning allows students and teachers to connect and communicate in a way they couldn’t do online.
“If I’m in the classroom with you I can see your face, and I can see you struggling, and I can figure out how to help. It’s hard to do that online,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at SUNY Plattsburgh Anne Herzog.
