<p class="x_MsoNormal" dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"><b>Outline</b><b></b></p> <p class="x_MsoNormal" dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;">On March 12th last, the government announced the complete shut-down of all schools, colleges and early childhood settings from Monday 16th March. Four days after the announcement, Dublin City University began its current adventure of online teaching and assessment, using a range of tools, ranging from video conferencing platforms, to our own Moodle based VLE having spent  four days ‘preparing’ for all academic, professional and operations staff and all students to engage and work on line. What was an emergency response became established as a new way of working and all involved have had opportunities to reflect on the many challenges this brought. We will share some of these with you – early observations as we are still in the middle of examinations, focusing in particular on student and staff wellbeing issues that arise not just from working in a new way, but from ‘being’ with students and with other mediated through screens. The additional anxiety caused by the continued threat of COVID 19 in Ireland, and ongoing severe restrictions highlighted these challenges, have also highlighted the role of Universities in public life.</p> <p class="x_MsoNormal" dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;"><b>Professor Anne Looney</b> is the Executive Dean of Dublin City University’s Institute of Education, Ireland’s largest faculty of education.  From 2001 until 2016 she was the CEO of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, the agency responsible for curriculum and assessment for early years, primary and post-primary education in Ireland.
