TASO is running an open call for best practice case studies to inform our research project, online teaching and learning in the time of COVID. This is an invitation for Higher Education Providers to submit examples of evaluation best practice from across the sector.

We are seeking submissions from providers and departments that have conducted high-quality evaluation on how the pandemic, and switch to online teaching and learning, has impacted disadvantaged learners.

Online Teaching and Learning in the time of COVID

We welcome examples of local evaluations that adhere to the following criteria:

  • Evaluation that has taken place since the start of the pandemic, March 2020, and is focused on understanding the impact of the pandemic, and the switch to online teaching and learning, on student experience and success.
  • Evaluation that is focused on understanding the experience of disadvantaged learners, and learners from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups, and how they have been impacted by the pandemic and moving to online teaching and learning, especially when compared to their more advantaged peers.
  • Evaluation that focuses on how learners’ attainment and progression has been impacted.

We are also particularly interested to hear about examples that have put the student voice at the forefront of the evaluation.

Evidence submitted will be used to help write a report which we plan to publish later this year. However, no higher education providers, local authorities, charities or other organisations will be identified in any publication unless we receive written permission to do so. We may also ask your permission to refer to your evidence in a repository of best practice as part of our online evidence toolkit.

To submit, please complete the form on this page.

Deadline for submissions: Friday, July 23rd, 2021, 5 pm.
