Experiences of the transition to digital distance education


Student Survey


This short survey concerns the transition to digital distance education due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. It is important for the University to capture your opinions and comments about this transition. The questions are broad and generally formulated to give an overall picture of students' experiences of the new teaching situation. We encourage you to specify your answers after each question in the commentary field. The results will form the basis for quality development and an in-depth study that is planned to be carried out in the autumn of 2020.

The survey responses will be compiled by the Unit for Quality and Evaluation at Uppsala University. The answers will be presented in such a way that individuals cannot be identified. Other analyses may be done by Uppsala University on the data, and by taking part in the survey you agree to this. Your answers are handled in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR.

If you have any questions concerning the survey, or wish to deregister from it, you are welcome to contact the Unit for Quality and Evaluation: uu-studentbarometer@uadm.uu.se
