Dear Fellow Colleagues and Global Online Survey Participants,
Stockholm, 28th January 2021
Our education community of learners, teachers, leaders, managers, providers, policymakers, and stakeholders are all and without any exception, here and elsewhere, in a dire learning-teaching, managing, and decision-making situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. The present Global Online Survey features as one among the many other research initiatives to shed lights on the need for relevant and most appropriate educational policies, strategies, and modalities to better address the impacts of COVID-19 on education and the need for distance education/digital solutions.
Educational actions reaching down the everyday learning-teaching contexts and conditions locally, nationally, and globally cannot be treated in the total absence and isolation of the direct voices and concerns from those actual beneficiaries, partners, and targeted audience of our educational sector, from primary/basic up to the higher/university levels. Mapping the improvements and/or shortcomings both prior to, and during COVID-19, on the access and quality of education offered, will assist the educational community in their choice of the most effective distance education/digital solutions.
We, therefore, encourage you to participate in this Global Online Survey in your own personal and/or institutional capacity. If you are the focal point for your country/institution, then please kindly facilitate us and ensure the full confidentiality of all your participants. It will take not more than 3-5 minutes to fully complete this Global Online Survey.
