Across Latin America and the Caribbean, higher education institutions have largely suspended face-to-face instruction because of the coronavirus pandemic. Some ceased instruction entirely for varying amounts of time after the onset of the pandemic, though the vast majority shifted to virtual instruction. A year into the pandemic, some institutions have commenced in-person teaching, more commonly in laboratories and other hands-on practical instruction.

In cooperation with USAID’s Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), Advance carried out a desk review and analysis of program documents, distributed a survey to 38 individuals (N=38), and held stakeholder consultations to assess the impact to date of the pandemic on selected higher technical education programs in several countries in the LAC region.
