Project Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced unprecedented disruptions to teaching and posed urgent questions regarding its impact on learners in all levels of education. The proposed study seeks to explore how teachers work collaboratively with others and use technology to support students during the crisis, so as to identify essential skills, resources, and support that can enable teachers to act as agents of change in difficult times.
Both trainee and in-service teachers will be invited to participate in activities involving reflective logs, interviews, and workshops. The lessons learnt will provide insights valuable to enhance institutional strategy and policy, as well as inform the design of a virtual internship for trainee teachers who continue to face great uncertainty regarding the availability of school placements which offer important experiential learning.
