In a few weeks, the first university academic year taught in full during the covid-19 pandemic, which has forced educational institutions to digitize at an accelerated pace, will come to an end. In this context, the eLearning company Homuork will organize on May 26 an online panel discussion with five industry specialists to share the challenges and lessons learned from this unprecedented experience. 

On the theme "Higher education and digitalization;, challenges of the post-covid-19 era", the measures adopted by universities in terms of the pedagogical and experiential model of the digital student will be discussed.

Sònia Sánchez Canut, head of Teaching Innovation at UPF-BSM, will talk about the experience of the digital student during the first course taught entirely in pandemic. 

Sònia Sánchez Canut, Head of Teaching Innovation, will speak on behalf of the UPF Barcelona School of Management. Francisco Pérez Lozano, Academic Director of the Institute of Continuing Education IL3, belonging to the University of Barcelona; and Marta Paredes, Vice Rector of Technology and Innovation Management at the International University of Valencia, will share the panel with her. 

Also participating from Madrid will be Iris Núñez-Trébol, vice-rector of the Alfonso X El Sabio University; and Alegría Blázquez, digital education technician at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. It will be moderated by Xavier Orri, COO and co-founder of Homourk, who leads several academic digitalization projects. 

The panelists will discuss the future of education and share initiatives promoted by their organizations.

In addition to reviewing the events of recent months, the panelists will discuss the future of education and share the initiatives promoted by their organizations to face the next five years with guarantees. The Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027), promoted by the European Commission to promote high quality, inclusive and accessible e-learning throughout the EU, will be fundamental in this period. 

Attendance at this round table is free of charge. The session will be open to public participation through questions and comments.
