Coronavirus: The Whole Story


How can we all help schools and school children during the pandemic?

Ep. 27

In this episode, we explore how the pandemic has affected local schools and communities.

UCL does an enormous amount of work locally to make its research accessible and to reduce inequalities in the education system. Join our host Vivienne Parry as she speaks to experts from the Faculty of Engineering Science and the Institute of Education, about why now, more than ever, supporting schools and communities is vital.

Our guests this week:

- Prof Louise Archer, Karl Mannheim Chair of Sociology of Education

- Dr Elpida Makrygianni, Engineering Education Developer and Coordinator

- Tiwa Jayeola, recent graduate of MSc in Civil Geomatic and Environmental Engineering and tutor in UCL's engineering tutoring programmes
