Dear EDEN Members and Colleagues,

The EDEN 2021 European Online and Distance Learning Week is closing on Wednesday, 10 November, at 12:00 CET.

In this session we will reflect on the present situation in higher education in post pandemic times.

Join us to share your views and reflections on important questions:

  • How well did we cope and what lessons did we learn?
  • How are those lessons reflected in future planning?
  • What should stay and what needs to change?

And many more questions!
