The dataset consists of interviews with classroom teachers on their experiences of implementing distance teaching in the spring of 2020. The interviewees are primary school classroom teachers.

The interviews with the classroom teachers examined how they had implemented distance teaching and what their average day of distance teaching was like. In addition, the interviewees were asked which aspects of distance teaching had been challenging and which aspects had been positive for them. The interviewees' views on what is essential for good distance teaching and what they missed about face-to-face teaching were also investigated. Other topics covered in the interviews included the assessment of student work during distance learning and the support provided by the school during the transition to distance teaching. Finally, the interviewees were asked about their own professional development during the period of distance teaching.

Background information included the interviewee's gender and the grade taught by the interviewee. The data were organised into an easy to use HTML version at FSD.

The dataset is available only in Finnish.
