During the pandemic, the Higher Education had to rapidly adapt to new ways of working with both staff and students having to swiftly work in a remote environment for a prolonged period. This research is focusing on how women in academia within the Higher Education environment in the UK have adapted to virtual working and online learning and in what way they were affected by the pandemic in their professional and home life. For the purposes of this study, the research approach is to investigate women in academia perspectives during the transitional period from face-to-face onto e-learning and the mechanisms that they have used and are currently still using, in order to endure the challenges of work and everyday life.
