Concerns related to transitioning to remote online working, impact on research productivity and culture, and work intensification, as intersected by enhanced managerialism, are ubiquitous to their accounts. As some respondents wrote of potential positive changes, particularly in the delivery of teaching, we conclude by suggesting potential avenues for building on successes in coping with the pandemic with some recommendations for mitigating some of the harms.||Funding Details:||World Universities Network||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Journal:||Irish Educational Studies||Copyright (published version):||2021 Educational Studies Association of Ireland||Keywords:||COVID-19; Ireland; Online learning; Higher education; Managerialism; Coronavirus||DOI:||10.1080/03323315.2021.1932550||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0332-3315||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
