International "Winterschool" at PH OÖ!

The social impact of distance learning

Most of us learned to value the online options we had during the Pandemic - for many of us it was the only way to keep international friendships up to date and to continue our school or studies. Much of what had to been developed and implemented stayed and changed our approach to teaching and learning essentially. But we also know the problems, the difficulties, the dangers - mostly in effects on our social life. In the framework of a CEPUS "winterschool", 40 participants from various countries discussed the social aspects of distance learning to make this kind of teaching better. See here a TERA FM TV/radioshow about the program:
