It is exactly this connection, which is so important for motivation for schooling and learning, for social development, for social forms of learning and therefore also for student performance.
Since the school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, online education has become commonplace in all sectors of education, whether or not combined with teaching on location. While we can hope that extended periods of school closures are over, online education will continue to be a part of our education, from primary to higher education.
In this lecture, Admiraal will discuss what research into online, blended and hybrid education says about students’ sense of belonging and their social, affective and cognitive engagement with schooling and learning.
