Further to our recent anonymous international survey on “emergency remote teaching” and the impact of COVID-19 on the education sector, we’ve had a blog post published today by Wonkhe outlining the impact on higher education practitioners:

The COVID-19 pandemic has almost overnight changed “how we do what we do” as academics, and the nature of our daily routines.

These are voices of experience representing all the major disciplinary areas and career stages from which transpire the enormous challenges that this pandemic presents to academic lives and careers.
