Webinar description

COVID-19 is representing a real challenge for traditional universities to be able to continue their teaching and learning activities remotely. Our speaker, Pedro M. Ruiz, will address the case of the University of Murcia, a mid-size public university of approximately 35,000 students and 2,700 teachers. During this webinar, we'll discuss the initiatives they developed and the lessons learned within the three main phases: emergency learning continuity, digital assessment, and preparations for the next course. This webinar is part of our Learning@Scale series.
