The COVID pandemic accelerated the adoption of online and blended learning in surveying education. This publication is based on the lessons from our response to the pandemic and builds on the contribution of FIG Publication 46 Enhancing Surveying Education through e-Learning. The following chapter presents the results of three surveys of staff and students at education institutions undertaken during the COVID pandemic. These include a global survey by FG Commission 2, a national survey in Germany by the professional association ‘German Association of Surveying – Society for Geodesy, Geoinformation and Land Management’ (DVW), and a survey by The Technological University of Dublin, Ireland School of Surveying and Construction Management (SSCM). These results of these surveys are presented in Chapter 2. Chapter 2 also provides a description of the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic as further background to good practice recommendations provided later in the report. These lessons learned, along with FIG publications and discussions during this period, informed the good practices in blended learning are described in chapter 3. In chapter 4 good practices in blended learning technology and infrastructure are discussed. Chapter 5 is dedicated to the role and benefits of blended learning in surveying education.
