What lessons has the pandemic taught about the purpose of education? Is it training for work or life? Is it one size that should fit all?

About this Event

This is the second on-line seminar in the series looking more closely at what we can learn about teaching, learning and assessment from the Covid crisis.

The last year has exposed the fragility of our education service in so many ways. It’s exposed massive inequalities in opportunities. It’s shown us that a system of teaching and assessment so completely dependent on a single model – teacher delivery to a class of 30 judged exclusively by end of course written exams – is far from robust and has been seen to collapse under the pressure of the pandemic.

We believe this is not good enough. We want to use this seminar to explore what has worked in this crisis, what we could have done better and what it has taught us about how we can make learning richer and assessment more meaningful.

Speakers
