Over the past three months, we have all been adapting to the challenges around removed face to face existence and having to deliver the same work + teaching experiences that needed to happen in order for us to survive in business and for our students at Reading school of architecture to complete their undergraduate education. I am hugely honoured that I get to teach in first year at the University in Reading, but I had no idea how our students would rise to the occasion of virtual teaching and learning, to go well beyond all our expectations. I am so very proud of what our students achieved and I have no doubt, that although the challenges where really quite difficult, they will all have learnt about resilience and will come through this time stronger and ready to adapt at what the 21 century throws at them!
