COVID Times & Student Engagement: Using and Interpreting NSSE 2021 Results

Date: Thursday November 18, 2021
Time: 1-2:15pm Eastern Time

Presenters:  Shimon Sarraf, Bob Gonyea, Jim Cole and Alex McCormick

NSSE results confirm that the coronavirus pandemic continued to have an impact on higher education and students in academic year 2020-21. For example, as students shifted to mostly remote instruction, participation in high-impact practices such as internships and study abroad understandably declined. Students also had fewer of the usual opportunities for collaborative learning and interactions with faculty, but some may have spent more time in academic preparation. While AY2021 may forever be marked by an asterisk, it is nonetheless important to explore results longitudinally, determine the appropriateness of comparison groups, examine differential impact on student subgroups, and share insights about how the disruption affected student engagement. 

Join us for this free, interactive webinar to discuss the contextualization of NSSE 2021 results and exchange ideas about interpreting these valuable data. We will offer guidance for using 2021 results and also look forward, discussing what results from the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE) 2021 suggest for current first-year students and how NSSE 2021 results can inform plans for sophomore year experiences.
