Whether you are new to teaching or a returning teaching, it is fair to say that the on-campus classroom of 2020/21 will be very different to any of your prior teaching experiences (either as a teacher or a student).
LSE’s Curriculum Shift 2020 details the School’s ongoing response to the coronavirus situation, and how it is adapting its teaching, and other practices, to best respond to it to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students. The following is a list of important links to School resources that you should visit, and discuss various aspects of campus life, including how the School is handling the return to campus, the precautions and steps it is putting into place, and the support mechanisms available to you to both help you do your job under, as well as cope with, the current circumstances:
There are, of course, more general resources available on staff health and mental wellbeing - in particular the Staff Wellbeing website.
It is important to note that the School understands these are difficult times for everyone, and you are not alone. If you cannot find the help or advice you need in these electronic resources, then please do not feel you cannot talk to anyone. There will be people who can help in your department and other areas such as Staff Wellbeing, for physical and mental health concerns and, of course, the Eden Centre, for teaching concerns.
