Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI) Transformation of higher education post COVID-19
The disruptions that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused to societies, including in the education sector, are unprecedented. The webinar will explore how the pandemic has transformed higher education’s approaches to education and learning, and its ability to reach and engage students, including challenges and inequalities for those that lack the capacities for rapid digital transformations and online learning.
This webinar is one of three open webinars that the Higher Education Sustainability Initiative (HESI) will be organising in the lead up to their HESI+10 Global Forum. The Forum is a special event for the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) – UN’s main platform for the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the global level – to highlight the critical role of higher education in achieving sustainable development.
The topics of the webinars will relate to the themes of HLPF. The output of the webinars will feed into the discussions of the forum.
Date & Time: 27 April, 9:00 – 10:30 (EST)
