Covid-19 impact on education in Switzerland – Overview of studies

Open Repository and Online Event (01.12.20 13-17h – Save the date!)

The pandemic has had a major impact on education, not only because of the social isolation during the lockdown, but also because of the need to organise education differently after reopening of schools. New practices have emerged and continue to develop. Educational researchers have quickly accompanied the emergence of these new practices with research activities. Many have conducted studies to document and investigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on education. These studies can make a significant contribution to understanding what has happened, but also to preparing future scenarios, based on evidence.

But how to gather all these studies in order to make them accessible and useful for the entire research community? The Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (EDK/CDIP), the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI/SBFI/SEFRI)  and the EPFL Center for Learning Sciences (LEARN) teamed up to propose a platform for the sharing of research on Covid-19 impact on education in Switzerland.

1. Open Repository of studies

Open access

We initiated an open online repository of such studies. https://go.epfl.ch/repository_access

Sharing your studies

Did you conduct a study or more generally collect data on the impact of Covid-19 on education at any level of education in Switzerland? Or do you plan to do so?

Please add your study to the repository such that the research community can easily find, access and cite your work or get in contact with you for potential collaborations. https://go.epfl.ch/repository_fill

2. Online Event on Tuesday 01.12.2020 13-17h
