Post-Secondary Education and COVID-19

Students and staff in post-secondary programs had to adapt quickly once COVID-19 lockdowns began in March. Over the course of a weekend, in person classes went online, not always a smooth transition, and facilities and services were no longer available.

Now, as the fall term begins, a “new normal” is in place. This transition has been rough on everyone but especially post-secondary students who have seen their jobs and job prospects dry up, while tuition, housing and loan costs continue to rise.

Tonight we find out how some students and those helping faculty adapt to teaching virtually have fared and what they are looking forward to? We also hear from The BC Federation of Students about what kind of advocacy is vital at this time.

Have a listen.

About the Author:

I love radio and pursue stories about people and communities working together to solve challenges creatively and often, with a lot of heart. It's the human side of the co-op model that intrigues me. That and any chance to travel, especially to smaller locales, where folks seem to know that co-operating just makes good sense!

    A great story that reminds me I’m not alone in my studies through Covid. The presenters offer some great tips to me about how to learn remotely through the pandemic.
    Thank you Sandy for this story and your reporting.

    We are in this pandemic together. We all are doing what we can to help lift everyone up in spirit and in learning, of course. Best of luck and let us know what we can do to relay students’ concern to professors.
