Once Upon A Time There Was A Virus..

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

A whimsical exploration of the experiences of tutors and students, both under-graduate and post-graduate, English and Mauritian, during the global Covid-19 lockdown. This presentation is based on auto-ethnographical accounts of teaching and learning online, and will explore narratives collected during the lockdown period from March to June 2020.
The brilliant moments and the epic fails, as well as the frustrations and the celebrations of teaching and learning digitally, will be explored through the stories and anecdotes of those that participated. Of particular interest is the ability of both tutors and students to become digitally agile when they really have to, and questions whether remote teaching and learning may now have a greater role to play within work-based learning programmes than once thought.
