Announcing New Conference: Higher Education in the Time of COVID-19: Challenges and Opportunities of Online Teaching

As Coronavirus spread around the globe in early 2020, universities retreated behind the screens. Higher education literally moved online, providing an opportunity to discover the joys of technology for some, a gruelling and impersonal experience for others, and something in between for most of us.

This event brings lecturers and students from around the world to share with each other the challenges each have faced in adapting to a new teaching environment. In the first panel, lecturers from Oxford University, University of South Africa, University of Lagos and many more will share the difficulties they encountered, and how they expect to adapt to the 2020-2021 academic term.

The second panel addresses the students’ experience with online education, their expectations and hopes, and advice on how to successfully engage with online educational tools in a very competitive cyberspace. Students from multiple universities including University College London, University of Pennsylvania, Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law and many more will come together to discuss their personal experiences with online learning.

The audience is invited to ask questions of the panellists and add their own experience of online learning in higher education.

The conference will take place online on the 26th of June at 2:00 pm BST.
