Teachers' wellbeing and workload during Covid-19 lockdown.

See, B.H. and Wardle, L. and Collie, P. (2020) 'Teachers' wellbeing and workload during Covid-19 lockdown.', Working Paper. Durham University Evidence Centre for Education and Schoolzone, Durham.


This report is the second in a series of reports looking at how teachers have responded to the current coronavirus pandemic. The first focused on teachers’ thoughts about the government’s reopening strategy and how they felt about returning to school. This second report considers workload, wellbeing and the use of educational technology (edtech). The findings in this report are based on a survey conducted 10 weeks into lockdown, which received 3404 responses. Our intention was to find out more about levels of wellbeing during the closures and gradual reopening of educational institutions, and to see what practical teaching strategies were being used along the way. The Spring term of 2020 may have seen the biggest test of the use of distance learning for mass education we have; these findings could be useful for education policy and teacher training.
