Report on Home-Schooling during the COVID-19 Crisis
During Lockdown, our Centre for Research in Educational Underachievement (CREU) conducted an extensive survey on Parents/Carers’ Experiences of Home-schooling in Northern Ireland during the COVID 19 Lockdown. The survey received a huge response, with over 2000 completed surveys received from parents and carers across Northern Ireland. Click here to see the report.
Remote Teaching and Learning
With all face to face teaching in schools suspended, the need for the highest quality, best-practice remote and blended teaching and learning has never been more important. As part of the College’s social responsibility activities, the College designed and delivered an innovative 4-week Remote Teaching and Learning course. Due to demand, twelve courses were run, with over 400 local teachers participating. The course was provided free of charge to teachers. Read More.
