Reflections on the COVID-19 pandemic: Perspectives on productivity, well-being and the futures of work

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged much contemporary thinking in terms of productivity, well-being and the futures of work. The shift to home working, sectors unable to work, and others that are overwhelmed there is no ‘one size fits all’ response. In this series of webinars experts from across the University of Warwick will be reflecting on the way in which COVID-19 has questioned traditional thinking in relation to and aspect of productivity, well-being and the nature of work. The webinars are intended to spark conversation and debate. They will help to connect those with common interests for further discussion and exploration.

Drop in opportunities for personal tutors and supervisors with Wellbeing Services and Faculty Senior Tutors

We are aware that personal tutors and supervisors are working hard to support our students at this highly unusual time.

It is likely that students will encounter or will report more complex needs and concerns this term, over and beyond the normal stresses of study and the exam period. As personal tutors and supervisors, you may be in touch with students whose pre-existing mental and physical health conditions have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic or whose living and working conditions are far from ideal. You may also have heard from those who have suffered bereavements, are feeling suicidal or who simply cannot cope with their exams or with the demands of their course.

If you want to talk things over with appropriate colleagues. We are here to help. Every Thursday, the Faculty Senior Tutors, based in the Dean of Students’ Office, and Wellbeing Advisors, are able to meet virtually with personal tutors and supervisors to discuss these types of questions and concerns. We can talk through scenarios, discuss how best to support students and provide further information on support services available. To book a 15 min appointment, please email Patricia Burke, PA to the Dean of Students’ Office (DofSResourcePA@warwick.ac.uk). You will then be sent a link to the meeting in Microsoft Teams. Please do contact us—we are here to help.

Virtual Viva

A huge congratulations to Humeyra @Warwick_Edu who successfully defended her PhD Thesis via a virtual viva (passing with minor corrections).

Humeyra who's Thesis was a comparative study examining formation of value of respect among students in Turkey/England, a significant contribution to Islamic Ed Studies, said about her virtual viva - "I desired to do my viva face to face but because of the new circumstances I couldn’t. However, I can say that virtual one was almost same. Everything went really good. I didn’t feel we are in different places and using our laptops. I also want to thank you for your organisation and it was useful to test the connection in the morning before the viva. It made me more comfortable as well."

Dr Abdullah Sahin from Warwick's Department from Educations Studies commented - "Both the student and I, the supervisor of the project, initially had some fears that the impersonal nature of a virtual viva could disadvantage the candidate. However, the whole experience turned out to be almost no different from holding a usual face to face viva. The student, chair and examiners all share the same feelings. But it is important to trial the equipment at least a day before so that all is ready to go."
