Presentation title
What they need and want: Unpacking post graduate students’ Hierarchy of Needs for meaningful online teaching and learning experiences
Presentation abstract
This exploratory study focuses on a group of post graduate students in a Malaysian private university who have been studying remotely for almost 2 years since the Covid 19 pandemic began in March 2020. The study has three main aims; firstly to identify the online learning needs of graduate student, secondly to unpack and understand these needs by referring to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs (1943) and thirdly to propose practical means in order to maintain a somewhat similar level of rigor as accustomed to by the students in the physical classroom. Using the qualitative approach, 12 post graduate students at various stages of study were provided questions via GoogleDoc which comprised of two parts; their online experiences and their Wishlist as online learners. These questions served as points for critical reflections as they participated in a 2.5 hour long online focus group discussion. Findings showed that while students identified certain basic needs as necessary for successful online teaching and learning, higher level needs such as the physiological and self fulfilment needs were also necessary in order to experience meaningful learning experiences in the online learning space.
