Abstract

Effective online education is a policy priority in the higher education (HE) sector since the COVID-19 pandemic occurred in 2020. Based on an online survey and qualitative interviews, we examine experiences of HE students and teachers in Hong Kong, and provide recommendations that can enable countries to leverage on the good practices of online education to rejuvenate HE in the post-COVID era. We find a need for greater institutional support beyond its current availability. Students’ perception of online education is less optimistic than what their labelling as ‘digital natives’ suggests. However, with time, online education is viewed more positively. Teachers find online education workload to be higher. More female teachers cite difficulties in balancing work and life, while older teachers report more technological difficulties. Since many respondents come from public affairs programs, which emphasize interaction in the classroom, the findings suggest a rethinking of pedagogical strategies of public affairs education.
