At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, many countries enforced population lockdowns, which compelled teachers to adapt to remote teaching quickly and without adequate preparation. This article investigates the online teaching experiences and challenges that pre-service and in-service teachers would encounter during the pandemic. The research involved an online survey and a semi-structured interview. The data presented in this article were derived from questionnaire responses by 62 teachers (including 28 in-service and 34 pre-service teachers) and interviews with 6 teachers (including 3 in-service teachers and 3 pre-service teachers). Thematic data analysis focused on tackling the thesis of this article. The survey results indicate that both teachers encountered similar challenges in online teaching, such as difficulties in assessing learning progress and interacting with students during the lesson. However, they have different experiences. For example, pre-service teachers feel stressed under supervision, whereas in-service teachers are busy with extra administrative work in the teaching process.
