European Workshop on Distance Learning

What is the new normal in distance learning in European universities? Introduced by Katerina Adam at NTU Athens,
the welcome address is held by Andreas Boudouvis (also at NTU Athens)
and this is followed by an introduction and a presentation of the University Alliance held by Christina von Haaren at LUH.
The first keynote speaker is Assoc. Prof. Pedro M. Ruiz-Martínez, Vice-Rector for Strategy and Digital University, University of Murcia, Spain. He takes a strategic view on higher education online learning.
Ruiz-Martínez stresses the fact that the emergency distance learning we have experienced this past year is not necessarily proper distance learning and he highlights that teaching no doubt will change into more hybrid forms of teaching compared to before the pandemic.
The subsequent panel session is chaired by Ondřej Ryšavý, Brno University.
The panel consists of Anna Rosengren, Jönköping University, Katriina Mielonen, LUT University in Lappeenranta, Finland, Cornelis Kater, Leibniz Universität Hannover, and student representatives Corinna Modiz and Milena Sipovac, both at TU Wien, and Elias Vassos at NTU Athens. They discuss a) the experience they have gathered during the last year and b) what can be done for the future.
The last part of the workshop, again chaired by Katerina Adam, features summary and conclusions. The panel consists of Julia Gillen, Leibniz University Hannover, abovementioned Ondřej Ryšavý, Gergely Rakoczi, TU Wien, and Jenný Jensdóttir, student representative, Jönköping University.The panel summarises what has been discussed in the previous panel, talking about the positives and negatives from what they have learned since the Covid-19 pandemic started.
The workshop ends with Monika Bakošová at Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, outlining the next steps.
