Welcome to the July 2020 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
While I searched for content to include in this month’s issue, I noticed there is an increasing number of predictive discussions about ‘a post-pandemic world’ and ‘life after lockdown’. These new buzzwords are seen in different sectors and industries. Agustian Sutrisno proposed in World University News that ‘the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the landscape of transnational higher education in three dimensions: student mobility, economic recession and international political tension’. We have seen the impact on each of these dimensions to varying degrees over the last few months.
However, by looking around, I cannot stop wondering about what lies beyond the institutional research and the higher education sector. How much longer will the current COVID-19 climate last? Will it worsen? Where is all this craziness taking us?
Bearing these questions in mind, I will take a break in August. There will not be an August issue, but the AAIR newsletter will resume in September.
Take care, particularly those in Victoria.
