Adapt, Support, Implement, Deliver: How the School of Mathematics adapted to hybrid teaching

Iain Gordon:

"The ASID project was the School’s response to facing the immediate challenges of covid-19. It gave us common purpose and a short-term organisation that provided structure and stability in a difficult time. Many people, all across the School, contributed energy, hard work and good humour to the project. Out of this, the most wonderful thing has happened, however, something that will live beyond Covid: the act of working together with groups of students, as co-creators, to improve our learning environment. We saw our students in a new light and they were superb: talented, questioning and diligent. Their contribution to the project to deliver hybrid teaching this year was enormous; but possibly greater still was the new connection we have with our students and which we want to continue year after year after year."
