During the unprecedented pandemic crisis with COVID-19, the classrooms across the globe have abruptly pivoted to virtual learning strategies. This change has posed many challenges with the pedagogical methodology for the instructors and learning environment for the students. However, this transition has prompted the emergence of new virtual instructional techniques. The author’s department emphasizes the hands-on-learning strategies for the introductory level courses to build fundamental skillset. Due to the extenuating circumstance, the institution rolled-out a wide range of virtual teaching modes with only a limited number of face-to-face classes. Among those courses, the Introduction to Graphics course is considered to be a critical course that requires in-person learning strategies, as it includes manual drafting and computer graphics. In the current semester, the author has a unique opportunity for a comparative analysis with two concurrent graphics courses that have implemented synchronous remote learning and traditional face-to-face teaching method. This work-in-progress paper will compare two group’s performance in the graphics course that shares the same course contents. A spatial reasoning test will be used to provide quantitative results and a survey will be conducted to obtain qualitative results for the control and test group. Additionally, another study can show the before-and-after comparison for an architectural design course that began with applied learning strategies switching to virtual reality (VR) setting during the pandemic crisis. The student survey will be provided as evidence to compare student experience and engagement. The paper will define various remote teaching methods that have been implemented during this semester and evaluate their effectiveness comparing to active learning strategies. As the graphics and design courses are common in Architectural Engineering Technology programs, the author will conduct a literature review comparing the other institutions, ultimately contributing the informative resource to add to the body of knowledge.
