School leaders and teachers have been asked to take immediate steps to develop and implement strategies which mitigate the educational impact. This Stretton Institute webinar through a panel of experts will discuss the unprecedented disruptions caused by COVID-19 to schools and schooling and analyse policy responses by governments in Australia and globally.

COVID-19 disruptions not only have an impact on educational outcomes for students but also affect teachers’ feelings about teaching, the profession more broadly and teachers’ wellbeing. Extensive Australian and international research has found that teachers are the most critical factor in student achievement and satisfaction. As nations experience COVID-19, schools can provide regeneration and hope.

This webinar will explore issues related to teachers, teaching and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Presenters will explore how COVID-19 impacts teachers’ professional practice, wellbeing, school culture and policy.
