Sprinting the COVID-19 marathon at Macquarie U

Sean Brawley explains how they did it and what comes next

Macquarie U plans a July return to large groups in teaching spaces (CMM yesterday). In Features this morning Professor Brawley explains how the university adjusted to the pandemic and is adapting to teaching students who want all/some/no classes on-campus, live on-line and/or asynchronous.

“As we struggle with a range of consequences from the pandemic, it may become all too easy to ‘snap-back’ into old ways of thinking and doing.  Finding the time and space to have collegial conversations around these matters when we continue to sprint a marathon is the first challenge,” he writes.
