Learning to teach from home

Cathal Doyle, Cameron M. Pierson, Cathy Buntting, and Yevgeniya Li

This article presents the thoughts of six teachers asked to reflect on their experiences planning for and delivering school-led learning from home opportunities during Aotearoa New Zealand’s COVID-19 Alert Levels 3 and 4 lockdown at the end of the first term and beginning of the second term 2020. What comes through is the efforts that these teachers made to keep connected with their students, the ways in which they prioritised student wellbeing ahead of formal learning, and the support that came from feeling part of a wider community where they could share their experiences and learn from others. The insights are shared in the hope that they inspire readers to reflect critically on their own experiences of learning to teach from home, identifying positive outcomes, insights into their own practice and motivations, and learnings that will continue to shape their professional practice moving forward.
