The start of an academic year like no other

Research output: Contribution to JournalEditorial


2020 has been, and continues to be, a year like no other: The World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic in March (WHO, 2020) and due to the highly contagious nature of the virus, the government put in place stringent measures to slow down its spread: including social distancing (Gov.UK, 2020). Social distancing had a significant impact on all Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the United Kingdom (UK), with campuses closing and face to face teaching being suspended and replaced by Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) (Bozkurt and Sharma, 2020; Hodges et al., 2020).
