It often takes a crisis in order to implement large scale change, and the Covid-19 pandemic is proving to be a tipping point for online teaching and learning. Whereas there are many important strategic considerations for online teaching and for the kinds of skills that will be needed in the digital economy, this webinar will focus on the urgent actions needed in order to transition to online teaching, given the disruption caused by the pandemic. The webinar will address topics that have to do with tools, equipment, teaching methods, preparation, and some bigger-picture issues related to budgeting, broader strategic impact, and medium-term sustainability. The webinar will be based on near-real-time personal experience from coordinating and spearheading this transition.
When? Tuesday, 31 March 2020, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM CET
