This session took place as part of the Learning and teaching @York in the Coronavirus Pandemic: Continuing the conversation (Autumn term 2020). The presenters were Steve King, Jill Webb, Tom Cantrell.
Tom, Steve and Jill began by providing an overview of their work with Departments and through the Academic Contingency and Faculty Learning and Teaching groups. They focused on their attempts to flexibly respond to policy changes, often at very short notice, and of the need to strike a balance between flexibility and standardisation of approaches whilst navigating through the demands of consumer regulation. They also provided some insights into the student pulse surveys, stressing the importance of belonging and connection.
