Back on Track: Helping Students Recover From COVID-19 Learning Disruption
Campus closures and the rapid shift to remote instruction in early 2020 due to COVID-19, followed by two more semesters that were anything but normal, caused months of disruption for college students. But whether (and how much) that disturbance seriously impeded students’ academic progress or cognitive growth, and how it may be affecting students and colleges now, remains unclear.

Attempts to quantify learning disruption in terms of “learning loss” or “COVID slide” have proven divisive among educators, with critics describing these terms as negative, unhelpful and vague. This webcast and the accompanying report provide early reflections on what seems to be working, what isn't and a discussion of practices that would be helpful to keep moving forward.
