The Challenges of COVID-19 for Tutorial Staff and Students
The past weeks of lockdown have created challenges for both students and staff in relation to how they work and how they feel. Tutors have sought new ways of engaging with and supporting students, and students have experienced new ways of learning. While learning at home has a number of benefits, including giving structure to the day and supporting a student's general health and wellbeing, and helping prepare students for the next step of their journey, into further study, university, an apprenticeship or work, it has also tested the resilience and capabilities of students.
This webinar, hosted by Sally Wootton and Beej Kaczmarczyk, will share the views and concerns of tutors and students across the sector and how they are preparing to return to a new normal. It will also focus on the needs of ‘left behind’ students who have not always had access to the technology and support required to get the best out of remote learning, or who have missed face-to-face contact with their tutors and peers.
