Focusing on the case study of education reforms amidst Covid-19 in New Brunswick, Canada this paper highlight teachers and other stakeholders’ reactions to these uncertain times. The study adopts an approach of collecting qualitative and participatory visual research data, and disseminating findings online through monthly reports as the study unfolds. These reports include coded interview transcripts, participatory films, and a timeline of media coverage and social media responses to educational reforms in the province. Our goal is to support practitioners and policymakers while they navigate this moment of crisis and reform. Our collaboration seeks to provide critical data that accents stakeholders’ experiences with teaching and learning during the pandemic and their experiences and responses to the implementation of reform.
