During these difficult weeks, in which a revolution in teaching methods was carried out, the Rector made his voice and his closeness heard throughout the university community, addressing a special thought to the students: we took the opportunity to ask students to evaluate the online teaching activities implemented during this period of closure of the offices through a dedicated questionnaire.
According to the results, the university has reorganized its activities and calibrate them according to the new needs of the students. The distance unites us, the solidarity of the hashtag #molamia is felt: exams, lessons and graduation discussions performed online. In particular:
Following the survey, we have the first feedback on new remote activities: 94% of students overall evaluate the online teaching experience as positive, and consider it as effective as canonical classroom lessons.
To support the teaching activities of the students, but also that of research by the teachers, researchers, post-graduate students and UniBg doctoral students, there was also the University Library System which was able to provide:
Furthermore, the SdM UniBg Higher Education School immediately activated distance learning for some masters, in particular:
Our goal is clear: maximum protection of students' careers so that the extraordinary sessions neither of the thesis nor of the exams are lost.
<<You replied in a great number (more than 3,800) and I thank you for that because such a large sample allows us to take a representative picture of the progress of this experiment, especially taking your point of view.
94% of you indicated that they consider online teaching to be generally positive, that they find it as effective as classroom teaching (especially if the teacher alternates speech with slides presentation) and that they are comfortable using the proposed technological platforms, in particular Microsoft Teams (the same that will be adopted for the proclamations of Bachelor Degrees and for part of the oral exams of these days).
You also highlighted some issues on which we will reflect further, but that we already addressed in part: these include, in fact, the length of the lessons and the total hours of daily teaching. As I already pointed out before, we asked the teachers to reduce the duration of each lesson and to put online pre-recorded lessons, so that you can better organise your study time.>>
