Ulster University researchers are seeking the views of parents of children from all kinds of schools across Scotland on their experience of supporting their children’s learning during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and invite you to take part in this research.
The pandemic has led to school closures across the world. Scottish schools closed on 20 March with an expectation for children to learn at home with their parents. The team of researchers from the UNESCO Centre, School of Education at Ulster University, Northern Ireland are exploring how parents or guardians of secondary-aged school children and young people are guiding and supporting their child/children’s learning, and the support they receive from schools, teaching staff and the wider community. The research is designed to highlight the challenges and the benefits that parents have experienced in supporting their children’s learning at this time in order for the education system to be better prepared for any similar challenges in the future.
The short survey is open* for responses until 31 May and can be accessed from: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ScotlandParents.
