dc.description.abstract PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // Virtual classes have become a norm with the advent of the COVID-19 induced pandemic and subsequent global lockdown. Vast segments of populations have had to adjust to the new normal, which involved adapting to technologically aided human interaction. Fields like teaching where one-to-one interaction has been coveted by academicians worldwide also switched to virtual tools and platforms. // Different researchers delving into the field of education have explored the idea of varying Technological Adaptation vis-a-vis gender. Few fields, such as STEM, have traditionally been seen as male bastions, while softer pursuits like teaching were left for the women. But online education has brought both male and female academicians and instructors on the same ground. // This research explores the gender gap in adapting to new technologies and tries to evaluate if the attitude towards virtual interaction focused on teaching and learning is dependent on the sex of the individual. Surveying instructors from higher education institutes all over India, the paper utilizes quantitative data to ascertain the attitudes of both genders towards online teaching and learning. Lastly, the researchers try to estimate the sociological reasons behind the growth and decline patterns in the interest of various segments of the population. // Paper ID 3565
