HUMANE autumn webinar programme
No way back: opportunities emerging in a post-Covid world
The future of international student mobility
Wednesday October 21st 12.00–13.00 CEST
Registration is free and open to HUMANE members and residential school alumni.
For a generation universities have enthusiastically pursued international strategies. Different institutions have prioritised different dimensions of internationalisation, but international student mobility has been a central feature of almost all institutions’ international engagement strategies.
The early evidence indicates that the impact of Covid on international mobility in many European higher education systems has been minimal. In other systems such as Australia’s, the decline in numbers has been catastrophic.
But as the Covid crisis continues to linger, what is the long term outlook for institutions' international strategies? Will we quickly slip back to a version of a pre-Covid world? Or will Covid, combined with a heightened awareness of the carbon footprint of international mobility fundamentally change things?
Our next autumn webinar will attempt to canvass these and many other questions. Three panellists will briefly speak to various aspects of the webinar topic, followed by a discussion where panellists will respond to your comments, questions and observations. We're looking forward to a lively and informative debate so we look forward to welcoming you.
The panellists are:
