“Higher education in Ibero-America in times of pandemic. Impact and teachers’ responses”
The Carolina Foundation publishes the book “Higher education in Ibero-America in times of pandemic. Impact and teaching responses”, which brings together a series of reflections and experiences that analyze the effects that the pandemic has had on virtual training strategies in the higher education sector in Ibero-American countries. Its pages analyze the implications of a change that was already taking place and that the crisis caused by COVID-19 has made evident, deepened and accelerated in many of its practices.
The book is organized in two parts. The first, of a more general nature, examines the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on higher education in Latin America. The second part focuses on practical experiences and case studies, written by professors and specialists of recognized prestige in the region.
The contributions are largely the result of the call for papers that the Fundación Carolina opened in 2020, under the title: “Innovative experiences of virtual training in Ibero-America in the field of higher education”.
The opening chapter of this valuable publication was written by the director of the International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, Francesc Pedró.
