In this paper, we analyze the case of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the consequences of the decisions taken during the covid-19 pandemic.
First, we explore the effects of the teaching mode on undergraduate student satisfaction, comparing fully online teaching in the second term of the 2019-20 academic year with bimodal teaching in 2020-21. Secondly, as a result of this analysis, we explain the decisions taken on the teaching mode applicable in the academic year 2021-22, where some restrictions imposed by the health situation are still in force. The measures implemented in this academic year will serve as input to find a teaching model that will include positive practices learned during these unique periods. We finalize with some reflections on teaching modes and the importance on the right conceptualization for decision taking and communication.
