Description

TEG Round Table Theme 1: Impact of COVID-19 in Higher Education

Since 2020, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Higher Education (HED). Teaching and student learning were forced to go online, which produced significant changes in the learning experience, teaching quality, research and knowledge transfer and university governance. While becoming more familiar in adopting virtual tools, many HED systems (particularly in less developed systems) have suffered from insufficient support. Teaching, learning and research in the Global South have faced tremendous challenges, intensifying the digital divide across the globe. This roundtable brings leading scholars to critically reflect on this theme, giving special attention to promoting international collaboration to achieve ‘Education for All.
