Finally, we have Freedom Day, where we are released from Lockdown- Its been 106 days for Sydney. Melbourne has had 4 different lockdowns over the past 18 months. The Covid kilos and Covid hair – well, it’s something to tell our Grandkids that we survived Covid-19.
But what will classrooms and training look like Post Covid?
For Adult education, Zoom has been an enormous help. We have been able to present classes all across this country, irrespective of state border closures. While people have been in lockdown, they have started a course so that when all this is over, they can emerge, blinking into the sun, but with a qualification and a licence! Now that’s taking advantage of the lockdown time and turning a negative into a positive.
But it’s been hard to keep that personal connection that you get with face-to-face classes. We will probably do some face-to-face courses in the future, and students will be happy to get that time again with the trainer.
But it won’t be the same – QR codes, and face masks, distancing rules, they are still with us and maybe for a while yet.
The learning options consist of Distance education, face-to-face, and now Zoom. It may not be the Age of Aquarius, but it is the New Age of Learning.
