Video of COVID-19 Response Webinar – Education during Covid-19: precarity, privilege, purpose

The third webinar in our COVID-19 Response Group series, Education during Covid-19: precarity, privilege, purpose took place on April 30th, 2020.

An audio recording of the session may also be found on the Moore Institute’s Soundcloud.

Webinar Overview

The Covid-19 crisis has led to the mass closure of educational institutions and an ensuing scramble to provide schooling at home. Aspects of the education system normally taken for granted have come into relief in the midst of a new sense of precarity. This seminar looks at pressing concerns emerging from current research on education provision, such as the exacerbation of existing educational inequities and the pivot to technology. We also consider longer-term implications and ask whether this could be an opportunity to reimagine education and schooling.

The session is chaired by Moore Institute Director, Prof Dan Carey, and was streamed live on April 30th, 2020 over Zoom, Facebook, and on FlirtFM radio.
