General Info

During this webinar, we will present the findings of a recently funded research study by The Open University exploring the impact of COVID-19 on professional and academic staff in UK Higher Education. The research covers and conducts a comparative analysis across the four UK nations and provides recommendations to alleviate the impact of COVID-19 on staff in HE.

The webinar will be hosted via MS Teams.

We would like to engage participation throughout, with plenty of time for discussion and feedback. If you have any colleagues that you think might also be interested in attending, please share this information with them and we hope to see them online.
