Abstract

In this study focusing on distance teaching during the COVID-19 Pandemic, 75 higher education faculty in Italy and the USA responded to a survey circulated internationally. In Italy and in the USA, perceptions of the usefulness of and future intentions to implement distance teaching were found to be similar in many ways and quite different in a few areas. Respondents in the USA reported a higher level of familiarity with distance teaching pre-pandemic, while Italy faculty reported a more positive outlook for continuing to use distance teaching after the pandemic. Possible reasons for these similarities and differences are discussed.
