Reinventing Education Post-Pandemic

Healing, Community, and Humanity: How Students and Teachers Want to Reinvent Schools After the Pandemic.

December 16, 2021 at 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

In this session, Professor Justin Reich will discuss his research on how the experiences of students and teachers during pandemic schooling are vital to educational recovery and building back better. 

Three research exercises were conducted in spring 2021: 

  1. 200 teachers were invited to interview their students and share their findings about the past year,
  2. 50 classroom teachers were interviewed, and
  3. 10 multistakeholder design charrettes were held with students, teachers, school leaders, and family members to begin planning for the 2021-2022 recovery year. 

Together, these findings form a “view from the ground” during pandemic schooling.
