In June 2020, the Secretary of State for Education commissioned Office for Students chair, Sir Michael Barber, to conduct a review of the shift toward digital teaching and learning in English higher education since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

NERUPI too is supporting its members with event themes and resources looking at online delivery and evaluation. Our upcoming March event will explore what we have learned and what we can do to engage students online: event: engaging learners in online delivery. Members can also access relevant talks from past events by Diana Laurillard and others at the NERUPI convention 2020 and our first online engagement workshop run in January.
