Event details

During the pandemic, a range of changes to learning and teaching happened in a short period of time, impacting on both staff and student practices.

In the spring and Autumn of 2020, and spring and Summer 2021, Professor Lawrie Phipps and his team carried out an interview-based project, across several universities, looking at these practices and how people were affected by the changes. As data came in from student degree attainment during the first part of the Pandemic it became clear that something had happened that had a positive impact on a range of student groups, including BAME, Disabled, and International Students.

This seminar will report from a range of staff and student voices, discussing the positive and negative aspects of the changes, and specifically report on early findings from the research into the positive impact on the attainment gap.
