THE RISE OF EMERGENCY REMOTE TEACHING DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC: AN EVALUATIVE STUDY
COVID-19 pandemic forced all levels of educational institutions to operate remotely and to put emergency remote teaching into practice. Remote teaching here means learner and instructor, is separated and therefore cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting. Moreover in remote teaching, learners are outside of physical classroom. This type of teaching may be synchronous or asynchronous. No doubts teachers are using various e-learning tools for remote teaching like WhatsApp groups, Googleclassrooms, Moodle etc. but still major challenge faced by teachers is to get them involved in this process of online learning. Emergency Remote Teaching involves number of obstacles, challenges and constraints. The purpose of this research was to reach the teacher educators and teacher trainees to know about their problems which they are facing during emergency remote teaching learning during pandemic. As a teacher educator, the first issue for the researcher was to explore various e-tools and platforms teacher educators are using for the purpose of interaction and online teaching and secondly to investigate into the challenges faced by both teacher educators and teacher trainees.
