COVID-19 is the most challenging global public health crisis we have faced for many decades and the disruption caused has forced universities to adapt quickly, challenging existing orthodoxies and implementing new approaches and ways of thinking. In this event, British Academy Vice President Simon Swain will draw on an expert panel to discuss the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on universities and reflect upon the resilience of the higher education sector, student wellbeing and safety, innovations in teaching and learning, the contribution of UK universities to local and national responses to the pandemic and its international ramifications.

The British Academy’s Shape the Future programme examines the societal, economic and cultural implications of the pandemic.
