Blurring boundaries: supporting our students from home

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsOral presentationResearch


The past 18 months have been a testing time for us all – few of us could have predicted how much and how quickly our lives would change. At the University of Northampton, the Academic Librarians were in a unique position to quickly adapt to the first lockdown, having mobile technology and experience of online teaching. Despite this technological advantage, we still faced challenges. This interactive workshop offers a chance to discuss your experiences and hear how we survived and what we’ve learnt from the experience. The speakers offer complimentary perspectives – the working parent and the singleton. We hope that this workshop will provide an opportunity for all of us to learn from each other and think about strategies and working practices that we want to abandon and what we can use in the future.
