Cambridge Conversations: When is a school not a school? Education during the COVID crisis
Thursday 11 June 2020, 4.00pm to 4.50pm BST
Cambridge Conversations webinars allow you to listen, connect and engage with current Cambridge thinking, wherever you are.
All over the world, schools have closed for varying lengths of time during the COVID-19 crisis. Parents, often juggling their own work alongside other responsibilities, must supervise their children’s study while teachers have had the stressful task of developing lesson plans suitable for presentation online. The third Cambridge Conversations webinar will bring together Dr Ems Lord, Director of the NRICH Project, and Dr James Biddulph, Head Teacher at the University of Cambridge Primary School. Together, they will tackle the dilemmas posed by schooling at home, and discuss long-term strategies to deal with the disruption to standard education caused by the large-scale lockdown.
Professor Dame Madeleine Atkins, President of Lucy Cavendish College will introduce the panel and moderate the webinar. There will also be the opportunity to participate in a real-time Q&A session.
