About this session

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on higher education around the world, posing major challenges to the system as a whole, but it has also opened up opportunities for innovation and change. Starting from the findings of the second global survey on the impact of COVID-19 by the International Association of Universities, and incorporating regional perspectives, this session will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the pandemic.


There’s no better way to kick off your Community Exchange experience than with a party! Popular on social media sites, watch parties involve small groups of people watching a video together and sharing their thoughts on the topic as the video plays. This session will be broadcasted on Friday 17 September, 11:00-12:30 CEST, in the event platform. Come along to dive deeper into the topic with peers and extend your network in this one-off event!
