Teaching-learning during COVID-19 pandemic in the undergraduate level
Imparting Education in institutions in India (schools, colleges, and universities) is predominantly based on traditional methods of education, that is, the approach still relies on traditional set up of face-to-face lectures in a classroom. Academic units at different levels have also started blended learning, yet, in-person classroom procedures are the primary methods. The outbreak of a deadly disease called Covid-19 caused by a Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2) took the entire world by storm. The World Health Organization declared it as a pandemic. The entire world appeared to come to a standstill. The education scenario also had to deal with this new virus. This situation posed an unprecedented challenge to the education system across the world and forced educators to shift to an online mode of teaching overnight. Many academic institutions that were earlier reluctant to change their traditional pedagogical approach had to embrace online teaching–learning. The article looks at this transition and the importance of online or e-learning modes in the time of crisis.
