Universities are currently considering what teaching looks like after Covid and have explored teaching innovations necessitated by the pandemic. Less common, however, is an attempt to reconcile different perspectives of teachers and students. This project, initially funded by EMC and now also supported by History UK and the Royal Historical Society, seeks to collect evidence from students and staff about their experiences of teaching and learning during the pandemic with the intention of developing a series of discipline-specific recommendations for the future of History teaching at UK universities. The initial phase involved surveying staff and students from across the East Midlands. The survey received over 200 responses.

The next stage of the project is to extend the survey nationwide. More information about the project and details of the current surveys can be found on the History UK website.
