This week, Q+A tackles Education in the Age of COVID.
Students and teachers are seeing the biggest disruption to our education system in generations. The debate over when to ease restrictions and re-open schools and universities is fraught, with different messages coming from State and Federal governments.
What’s the long-term impact of remote learning? What strategies could see teachers and students returned safely to schools? How will our beleaguered tertiary sector recover? And has the pandemic made existing inequities even starker?
