(Online) Education & (Challenges) During Covid-19
Hosted by Dr. ID
Event ended


This year has been a challenge for most of us, facing the recent covid-19 pandemic. The entire society has seen changes to daily life. Social distancing is amongst those measures that have drastic impact on the way we live at most places of this shared world.
Several forms of virtual online communication and interaction have clearly helped to build bridges between distanced persons or groups in all possible contexts from school, over university, to the business world. This is a great development, as many of these forms and the associated technologies do a great job here. Ultimately, the future will tell, if this is just a work-around that is dued to the covid-19 pandemic or if this is actually part of a bigger social shift with an ongoing impact. 
Anyway, several tools and platforms founded the technical background of an interesting social experiment in sight of university (studying/teaching). They were the only ingredient that could have made this last summer term even possible, if the university was still in operation.
In other words, 100% online teaching/learning was the only way to operate in most cases. Looking back, this modus operandi definitely was a challenge - not only for most students. especially for the unprepared amongst the teaching persons. Overall, it clearly revealed the potential of online education.
This event discusses some of these challenges, sharing some experiences and offering some "best-practices" that proved to work well to overcome distances even in a pandemic environment.
