Title: What Style of Classes Should We Choose for Student Learning ? – Thinking From the Recent Pandemic –
Stream: Education
Presentation Type: Virtual Poster Presentation
Kenta Minato, Chuo University, Japan


The recent pandemic has changed the way people learn by adopting online classes via the Internet. Along with the shift from traditional classes to online classes, advantages and disadvantages of both styles of class are gradually becoming apparent. This poster aims to consider how people can enrich their education by mixing both styles of learning. Perhaps, people will see a return to traditional classes soon, but there should be further debate to define their way of learning with this unexpected opportunity. Recent studies conducted in Japan found the reputation of online classes from the students was mostly positive. Students could enjoy their freedom from the restriction of time and location and use them effectively. On the other hand, the demand for in-person classes was still existing, especially, if classes need discussion or debate. In this poster, we use the results of several surveys for university students about online classes conducted by Japanese universities during the pandemic. Then, we compare the results and find out the essential points of each style of learning. As for the lectures for input of knowledge, it is good to use online, but for classes needing discussion or further debate, it is better to use face-to-face. Therefore, traditional classes cannot be completely replaced by online classes, but even within a single subject, students and teachers need to consider which styles of learning should be applied. Then, before back to traditional classes, we hope to consider mixing style of education format to increase the efficiency of learning.
