How determinant was our attitude going into COVID on our outcomes?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, a new study out of the University of Augsburg and the University of Manheim surveyed faculty attitudes going into their transition to remote instruction, and compared it against student ratings of their teaching quality.

It turns out that the instructors who indicated less willingness to learn new skills and embrace technology were fairly self-aware in their self-assessment, and experienced more negative student evaluations on their remote instruction performance.

The takeaway? In an ever-changing world, hiring faculty with built-in resilience, agility and optimism may be more important than ever.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
