Building on our Pandemic Experiences

The last two years have been incredibly difficult– whether due to home-schooling children, suffering loneliness during lockdown, or rapidly adapting to remote work and study.

However, the University community has shown remarkable resilience, and responded positively in the face of these challenges.

Staff and students give their reflections on working and studying during the pandemic, and how they plan to build on their experience.
