Changing education models

More than year after the Covid-19 pandemic abruptly altered educational norms  worldwide, the future of university learning has irrevocably changed, and not necessarily for the worse, University of Guadalajara (UdG) Rector Ricardo Villanueva Lomeli reflected this week.

The development of a range of digital tools has allowed more than 300,000 students to continue their studies, and regardless of how the coronavirus pandemic evolves, it is clear that a hybrid combination of in-person and online classes will be a fixed component of any future educational model, Villanueva said during a virtual conference featuring educational leaders organized by tech giant Google.

Villanueva said apps such as Google Meet and Classroom have facilitated the learning process during these difficult times and, along with other digital innovations, will be “fundamental” moving forward.

Thanks to these tools, said Villanueva “the interaction between teachers and students of the University of Guadalajara has improved substantially.”
