Leading schools for the future: Lessons learned from the COVID lockdown

Press/Media: Article/Feature

Description

For teachers in Victoria, COVID-19 stage four restrictions brought a swift move to online learning. This was a disruptive and demanding time characterised by two waves of lockdown, lasting in total for 168 days. 

The first wave proved challenging for teachers, students and families. To understand more about lessons emerging from this first wave, Allan Shaw, principal of The Knox School, an independent co-educational K-12 school in Melbourne’s east, drew on established relationships with academics from the Faculty of Education at Monash. 

Doctors Kathy Smith, Jennifer Mansfield and Megan Adams completed research to understand what teachers learned and valued as a result of this experience.
