Storying Sheffield

Students’ stories of the pandemic

The stories linked below show how students in a variety of situations managed their learning and lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This project was run by Dr Jenny Burnham as part of her ‘Skills for Success’ module. In SFS, students select a project that fits their career ambitions or skills-deficit needs and then spend 30 hours working on it during Semester 1. The ‘Living History’ project involved a group of students collaborating to make a set of stories to capture the experiences of students transitioning through the phases of Covid (before, lockdown, new normal).
