In this study, we carried out an online survey of 225 faculty members of various higher education institutions across Japan to know how active learning courses were implemented and operated during the academic year (AY) 2020-2021. The result of the survey showed that (1) implementation and operation of active learning courses are done differently in each academic discipline, (2) overall situation during AY 2020-2021 is returning to its original state prior to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, and (3) most respondents suggested that 30%-50% of a single class can be done online. Additionally, there have been many cases reported where active learning courses were not implemented, operated, and managed because of the pandemic. It has also been found that teachers had difficulties in managing and grading the active learning courses themselves.
