PHE@Home Info Days | Discussion “PHE in the time of Coronavirus: threats and opportunities“

COVID-19 outbreak has dramatically shaken the global professional higher education sector creating a lot of challenges for teachers, students and institutions’ leadership. The existing health crisis keeps on revolutionizing online learning, assessment and application processes on a daily basis and has questioned how the applied research may be conducted in the times of uncertainty.

In response to that, EURASHE is organising an online debate aiming to share the best practices from the members, understand what are the common threats for the PHE institutions and how to see opportunities in the times of uncertainty.

The webinar will take place on 19 May 2020 from 15:00 to 16:30 (CEST) on Zoom.

The speakers of the debate will touch upon the following issues:

  • Online learning: will we stick to that?
  • Students’ assessment and newcomers;
  • Cooperation with the world of work and students’ placements;
  • Financial challenges and the role of the Governments;
  • International students and mobility: how to act in a more insular world?
  • Post Coronavirus reality: what does it mean for the professional higher education sector? Where lays the biggest threats and opportunities?

The participants of the event are encouraged to send their questions before the meeting or raise them during the debate in the Zoom chatbox.

Speakers of the event are:

  • Mrs Barbara BROOIJMANS, Director of International Relations, Haute École Ephec (EPHEC), Belgium
  • Mr Mihnea Costoiu, Rector, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest, Romania
  • Mrs Vanessa Debiais-Sainton, Head of the Unit, European Commission
