Student Empowerment / Preparedness: Key to Learning Effectiveness in Remote Teaching
Keywords:management policy, learning effectiveness, student empowerment, student preparedness, remote teaching
Despite significant investment in resources for online delivery of courses, many universities struggled to ensure quality learning experience for their students during Covid-19. This research analyzes the factors that have a bearing on learning effectiveness. Results of the study clearly establish the criticality of student preparedness to learning effectiveness. We posit that empowering students to take charge of their learning through preparedness of all major stakeholders (student, faculty, and university) would positively affect the learning outcome for students. Effective learning experience is best achieved when institutions focus their efforts on empowering students to take control of their learning as opposed to simply investing in resources to deliver courses remotely.
