Conference: The Impact of Covid-19 on Staff in UK Higher Education

Dates
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 10:00 to 16:00
Location
Edinburgh Training and Conference Venue, 16 Saint Mary's Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SU

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to attend our free face-to-face conference that will be held in Edinburgh on the 14th of July to discuss the findings of our research study. This research provides a comparative analysis of the pandemic’s impact and how it was addressed in the higher education sector across the four UK nations. It investigated COVID-19 impact on staff’s well-being and mental health, career progression, professional development, and personal lives. It also explored the pandemic’s impact on academic teaching and research and sheds light on the support provided to UK HE staff during the pandemic. 

The FREE event will be interactive and engaging to facilitate knowledge exchange and will include a free lunch. 

Dr Rasha Kassem (Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Financial Management) is the academic lead, and she can be contacted via email if you have any queries.
