Abstract

The physical distancing requirements designed to slow the contagion of COVID-19 instigated sweeping changes to the education sector. School closures in 193 countries brought significant disruption to education and to the lives of children, parents, and teachers. This study explored the experiences of school stakeholders during this period of crisis distance learning (DL). The perspectives of participants in six discrete focus groups of pupils, parents, and teachers at a private school in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, were subject to thematic analysis. Researchers identified three key themes, including ‘a need for stakeholder support’, ‘curriculum delivery implications’, and ‘educational outcomes of crisis distance learning’. Conclusions and recommendations will be of interest to researchers, teachers, school leaders, and teacher education providers.
