The Open University Business School leads ground-breaking £300k project on online learning and strategic planning through, and post, lockdown in English secondary schools.
Leading school learning through Covid-19 and beyond is a project looking at how school leaders strategically manage and plan for online provision of learning, through the pandemic and beyond. It will address how they have coped with, and continue to manage, particular challenges such as a lack of equipment, absence of learners from school, and provision for Special Educational Needs (SEN) students.
A team led by Dr Jacqueline Baxter of The Open University Business School has been awarded nearly £300,000 to investigate online learning and strategic planning through, and post, lockdown in English secondary schools.
Funded by UKRI, the project team will be working with three key partners – Schools North East, The Key, and Derby Teaching Schools Alliance.
