Resilience & Robustness: Curriculum in the time of Covid-19 with Steve Rollett
About this webinar:
Schools had to adapt quickly in spring 2020 in response to Covid-19 and did so with great resilience. However, with the pandemic staying with us for longer than many people had anticipated, this session explores what might be required in order to maintain curriculum continuity over the long term. Building on insights from education and policy research, we will look at the curricular challenges schools face, including maintaining face-to-face and remote education, and share some perspectives and practical steps that could be helpful.
