Covid-19 has brought about the largest worldwide disruption to education in history. Accelerated changes and exacerbated inequalities in the sector have significantly impacted students and staff alike. Even before the pandemic, higher education systems struggled with reduced budgets and deteriorating working conditions. This panel is the first part of a global conversation on the future of the workforce in higher education. It will discuss the short-, medium- and long-term consequences of the pandemic on teachers, researchers, and other higher education personnel and possible implications for the future of the profession.
