“When everyone went online - Online education and the Covid19 Crisis” - by Alastair Creelman.

About the webinar

Back in March all universities and high schools across Europe and most of the world switched to online education almost overnight.

The transition went remarkably well in general, thanks mostly to teachers and educational technologists supporting each other, though there were others, in particular students, who faced challenges.

What can we learn from this period and how might education change in the coming year?

The session outline:

- 30 min presentation by Alastair

- 30 mins Q&A and discussions
