Abstract

COVID-19 crisis is changing our lifestyle and also how to teach at any educational level. Online delivery has become predominant. Educators have started to use new tools and methods to engage students who had to change their learning approach. An international survey with responses from 151 university teachers, primarily based in Europe, North America, and South America, teaching quantitative courses in degrees in Economics and related fields documents how the teaching strategies have been modified due to this pandemic event. As the main findings, online teaching has the advantage to give more flexibility and new educational tools. The disadvantages include the perception that teachers and students are increasing their workload and reducing their interactions. The main takeaway is how new technological tools and the flexibility of online teaching will have an important impact on future courses and module design.
