Education in times of covid-19
The partners in LEARN were working with teachers to face the sudden switch to distance teaching during the lockdown. Some of us worked with EPFL teachers, others with teachers in public primary schools. The efforts continue for the new school year that is impacted significantly by measures to reduce the transmission of covid-19.
Here, we intend to share the ressources that are created in these different efforts as this content might be useful to other teachers at other institutions or levels. Some ressources are available in English, others in French.
LEARN, SERI and CDIP/EDK ave teamed up to create a platform for researchers studying the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on education.
EPFL teachers have demonstrated flexibility, openness and creativity in their response to sudden need for online teaching. Let’s not miss this opportunity to investigate this massive adaptation of teaching practices!
As part of documenting changes related to education under lockdown, a team at EPFL has developed a simple data gathering tool that aimed to collect responses across the higher education sector in Switzerland.
