UNESCO IESALC’s participation in #WHEC2022 | Round Table: Impact of Covid-19 in Higher Education

18 May, 2022 hora: 10:15 am - 11:45 am

Within the framework of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022, UNESCO IESALC will take part in the Round Table – Theme 1: Impact of Covid-19 in Higher Education at 10:15-11:45 (Spain time) on May 18, 2022.

This round table discusses major challenges faced by higher education around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly examining the impacts of the crisis on teaching, student learning, research, finance, and international education. The outbreak of the pandemic since early 2020 has changed the world in an unprecedented way. Higher education institutions (HEIs) are severely affected by this global health crisis across the globe; however, the impacts have varied across different regions, institutions, and social groups.

Around the world, every aspect of higher education has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Now, two years on, what have we learned? Is online teaching and learning here to stay? Are higher education institutions better prepared for future crises? 

The International Institute for Higher Education will be launching a major new global report, Resuming or Reforming? Tracking the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on higher education after two years of disruption. 


Moderator: Ka Ho Mok, Lingnan University, Hong Kong

Panelists: Emma Sabzalieva, UNESCO IESALC; Ariel Fiszbein, Inter-American Dialogue; Jandhyala Tilak, Council for Social Development, India; Roberta Cordano, Gallaudet University, USA.
