Covid-19: Education Research Impact
The effects of Covid-19 have been far reaching. Beyond being a recognised global health emergency, it has wide-ranging effects on children’s schooling around the world. This paper draws on lessons from a webinar organised by the Impact Initiative that explored how researchers need to think differently about impact for education policy and practice in the context of Covid-19. It provides insights from education policy actors and researchers on how they are adapting their thinking on the types of impact that can be achieved in the context of Covid-19.
