Covid-19: LSE global initiative to capture experience of students and staff

Leadership Instincts

A global initiative which aims to assess the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on the studies and working lives of university students and staff has been launched by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), in collaboration with Healthbit.com. The LockedDown survey will capture how measures to combat the pandemic are affecting staff and students’ educational, professional, and financial lives, as well as their wellbeing - socially, mentally, and physically. This will include the effect of the different types of actions that have been implemented internationally and their impact on different cultural, social, and economic circumstances.

The survey takes just five minutes to complete and is available at https://www.healthbit.com/the-lockeddown/.  A version of the survey can also be taken by members of the wider public. The survey will be available in 15 languages and the LockedDown team is building collaborations with academic partner organisations. These will help maximise the project’s international reach and will lead the analysis in local settings. Universities interested in getting involved should email lockeddown@healthbit.com.
