Third-level colleges have been advised to increase on-campus activity where at all possible due to the higher that usual risk of student dropouts.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic in Ireland, most third level education has taken place solely online due to the various public health restrictions that have been put in place since March. As a result of this, there has been a growing concern over the number of student dropouts that may arise due to the lower level of engagement among students, especially first years since there is a lack of social interactions and the traditional experience associated with being on campus. To avoid this, colleges are planning the return to campus as soon as possible following public health guidelines. But are they ready??

With the current social distancing guidelines, college campuses need to ensure that they are adhering to all health and safety regulations. Educational institutions may choose to bring staff and students back in waves with staggered daily and weekly schedules for classes and activities – and a combination of in-person and remote learning. This approach will be stressful for administrators, educators, students and parents. It will require thoughtful planning and deliberate reflection about resources, technology and, most importantly, desired outcomes.
Returning to school or campus will challenge every institution to rethink their capabilities for providing blended in-person and remote learning experiences to help create a safer environment for students, educators and administrators.
