Abstract

The world was not prepared to deal with the problems raised as a result of COVID19. This new pandemic has affected all fields of life including teaching and learning. To facilitate children, institutions had adopted different mechanisms to facilitate the students. This paper is about the teaching and learning experiences of teachers and students during covid-19. An online survey was conducted to seek the perceptions, problems, and solutions from 16 social Sciences teachers, 15 Science teachers, and 345 students of higher secondary and postgraduate level, Govt. girl's degree college, Faisalabad. Data analysis showed that most Teachers delivered lectures in asynchronous mode. The findings revealed that the majority of teachers faced a lack of student-teacher interaction. Teachers believed besides their hard work to prepare lectures for students, the response of students is very poor. Married female teachers faced lots of problems delivering online sessions. Whereas students faced problems attending online classes due to internet connectivity, availability of electronic gadgets, electricity in rural areas, lack of technological information and expertise. The students of the social sciences stream proposed audio lecturesinstead of video lectures whereas the students of Sciences proposed more interactive lectures rather than mere solved presentations
