Impacts of COVID-19 on teaching practice
Opportunities for virtual internships
Mission of the project
Explore how teachers work collaboratively with others and use technology to support students during the crisis of COVID-19. Identify
essential skills, resources, and support that can enable teachers to act as agents of change in difficult times.
Through in-depth interviews, we will explore how teachers sought support from various social networks during the COVID-19 crisis and how they were able to utilise technology to support students.
We will take co-design approaches to invite ideas for a prototype of a virtual internship that can enable experiential learning through simulated scenarios of problem situations and the provision of effective feedback.
A virtual internship for teachers
Based on the research findings, we will conceptualise a prototype virtual internship for teachers, focusing on situations where teachers need to exercise professional thinking and skills to solve problems.
