Abstract

This study examines the attitude of teachers toward e-learning as the new learning modality and the possible development of general anxiety disorder among teachers amidst COVID-19 pandemic. A sample of 116 teachers were taken before the start of the school year and another 75 teachers after one semester of executing e-learning served as the sample of this study. Data were collected through a self-administered survey questionnaire sent through a google form to comply with the existing lockdown policies of the government. The result indicates that the respondents, in majority, developed mild to severe GAD while preparing and executing e-learning. The data also showed that the acceptability of the teachers were found to be not relatively high nor relatively low. Problems using GAD 7-item questionnaire and TeLRA assessment revealed the rising problem brought by the change in learning delivery system among teachers.
