The article in which Near East University faculty members evaluated the changing education system during the epidemic was published in an international journal

The article titled “Evaluation of the Changing Education System in Universities During the Pandemic Based on the Opinions of Faculty Members and Students” and written by Near East University faculty members Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Yeniasır, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Burak Gokbulut, Assist. Prof. Dr. Selma Korkmaz, and Ayşenur Özbent, a graduate student of the Turkish Language Teaching Department, was published in the International Journal of Emerging Technologies in Learning, which is scanned by international indexes such as SCOPUS, WOS and EBSCO.

In the study, it is investigated how the distance education process is perceived by students and teachers by evaluating the positive and negative aspects.

There are problems that need to be solved in distance education
Making a joint statement on the study, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Yeniasır, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Burak Gökbulut, Assist. Prof. Dr. Selma Korkmaz and Ayşenur Özbent said that although it has a long history in the world, it is mostly used as a supportive education model, while the whole system’s return to distance education during the pandemic process caused adaptation difficulties for students and teachers. In the study, “Although faculty members and students stated deficiencies in distance education, it was seen that they did not completely reject this change and they welcomed this change except for some points (for example, measurement and evaluation). From this point of view, it is necessary to focus on measurement and evaluation in the changing education system and to produce solutions at this point. Informing students about the evaluation criteria in distance education will help to eliminate the concerns mentioned in this regard. In addition, the faculty members enriching the lessons with visuals and requiring participation will contribute to a more efficient process.
