Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

Before the pandemic, Lawrie Phipps and Donna Lanclos engaged in research around the practices of UK-based academics. What they learned while interviewing them about the choices they made around teaching, was that decisions about technology primarily emerged from teaching and pastoral care needs, rather than some abstracted notion of technology being “better” or “21st century.” During the current emergency, and witnessing the global impact of COVID-19, Lawrie and Donna, and colleagues from across Jisc’s R&D team have continued to talk to academics and students about their experience of teaching and learning. Conversations they witnessed across education see-saw back and forth between “Here’s a list of tools you can use to put your class online” and “Here’s how I care for my students”.
