Webinar: Adapting to Covid in the New Academic Year

The European Network of Ombuds in Higher Education will host an online roundtable on the continuing effects of COVID on universities and the work of Ombuds. The free webinar on December 10, 2020 is titled, "A new year, a new [ab]normal: Adapting to Covid in the new academic year, and to look at how our institutions are adapting to ‘the new [ab]normal’."

Here are details from ENOHE President, Josef Leidenfrost, and Vice President, Jean Grier:
Our first webinar in Covid-times took place six months ago when Higher Education was facing unprecedented and disruptive changes. Over the summer we hoped for a return to near-normal in the new academic year - but then the second wave broke. Short presentations from four speakers from four different countries (Greece, Romania, England, Canada) will focus on the adaptations they have made to enable higher education to continue – and some positive changes which have come about as a result of new approaches. Following this there will be an opportunity to discuss what is happening at your institution. How has Covid affected your role and your work as an ombuds? What new approaches have you developed for your work? Are there positive developments that mean that you would not wish to return to the ‘old normal’?
This is a forum for ENOHE members and others to share and compare the experiences. It is an opportunity to learn from, network with and generate ideas from your colleagues.
When: Thursday 10 December 2020
Time: 1500-1630 CET
Language: English
Required: Web access to Zoom 5.0
