On October 12, 2022 at 13h00 (UK time GMT+1), the British Association for International and Comparative Education organizes an International Webinar Series named “The impact of COVID-19 on education: Lessons learnt for access, quality, and pedagogy.”

 The webinar focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on education in developed and developing countries. Bringing together scholars and practitioners in social sciences, it explores how education systems at various levels have responded to challenges posed by COVID-19 over the past three years and the implications for access, equity, and pedagogy. Reflecting on their ongoing research projects on COVID-19, the speakers will also reflect on the opportunities and challenges in moving forward, and minimizing the disruptions caused within education system. 

Emma Sabzalieva, Head of Research and Foresight at UNESCO IESALC, Dana Abdrasheva and Mauricio Escribens, policy analysts at UNESCO IESALC, will present the main takeaways from the UNESCO IESALC report: Resuming or Reforming? Tracking the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on higher education after two years of disruption. The report explores how higher education systems worldwide have responded to the Covid-19 pandemic through the experiences of over 40 countries. This global approach offers a broad overview of the multiple and highly heterogeneous impacts of COVID-19​ on higher education to comprehend ongoing trends, opportunities, and challenges moving forward.  

Matthew Easterbrook, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the School of Psychology (University of Sussex) and Naureen Durrani, professor at Nazarbayev University’s Graduate School of Education (NU GSE), will also exchange their experience on this webinar.
