Remote teaching, technology and education, virtual education, SWOT


With the aim of addressing an immediate (and uncertain) future regarding, the Covid-19 sanitary crisis, a group of professors from the three design degrees (architecture, graphic design and industrial design) offered at the Metropolitan Autonomous University (MAU), decided to share experiences and reflections about the actions necessary to ensure a better way to deal to the health emergency and the resulting social estrangement. To this end, we used a strategy known as SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) to analyze, assess and diagnose the experiences lived under the Emerging Remote Teaching Program (ERTP), a strategy that was undertaken by the University to continue its educational activities. Here we present the results of the analysis and our reflections.
