O ensino a distância e o COVID-19: informações de estudantes ucranianos

Embora o ensino a distância tenha se tornado uma parte essencial da vida cotidiana da maioria dos estudantes durante a quarentena, há poucas evidências sobre sua eficácia entre os estudantes ucranianos. O objetivo da pesquisa é estimar a eficácia do atual processo de ensino à distância nas instituições de ensino superior ucranianas; delinear tipos de educação a distância oferecidos; destacar os aspectos negativos e positivos da introdução do ensino à distância; descrever as perspectivas e abordagens para resolver os problemas da educação à distância nas universidades. O estudo buscou coletar dados sobre as atitudes e necessidades dos alunos para o ensino a distância durante a quarentena por meio da pesquisa on-line - Covid-19 Distance Learning Questionnaire, que envolveu 540 participantes. São considerados os pré-requisitos para o desenvolvimento da educação à distância na Ucrânia. Os resultados revelam as ferramentas de ensino a distância mais utilizadas, duração do aprendizado, tipos de atividades de lazer, prontidão dos participantes do processo educacional para o ensino a distância, fatores que afetam o ensino a distância (habilidades, velocidade da internet, emoções) etc. Os resultados obtidos na pesquisa podem ser fornecido às agências governamentais, instituições de ensino e outras partes interessadas para melhorar ainda mais o processo de ensino à distância.
