Nandy, Monomita, Lodh, Suman and Tang, Audrey (2021) Lessons from COVID-19 and a resilience model for higher education. Industry and Higher Education, 35(1), pp. 3-9. ISSN (print) 0950-4222


In this article, the authors first highlight major challenges that higher education institutions (HEIs) are facing during the Covid-19 pandemic. They then consider the challenges HEIs should expect in the post-Covid period. In practice, HEIs s are keen to maintain their core activities during the pandemic and in this context the authors examine how institutions can continue their activities efficiently by addressing issues related to the potential socio-psychological damage to stakeholders in higher education. To answer this question, they recommend the application of an all-inclusive resilience model at the beginning of the recovery period to withstand the shock of the pandemic and show how an HEIs can apply the antifragile model for the advancement and betterment of the experience of individuals associated with it. The recommendations of the study contribute to the literature related to HEIs and the coronavirus and constitute practical guidance for a post-Covid model that may be followed by HEIs around the world.
