COVID-19 has created challenges for those of us engaged in international education and has forced us to consider how we can seize this opportunity to re-imagine internationalisation.
As leaders in the tri-lateral partnership between the University of Missouri, Ghent University and the University of the Western Cape, we have begun discussing how we might use technology such as Zoom to bring global education to our students and find ways to engage in collaborative research.
We invite you to join us for a Zoom discussion with faculty colleagues from all three universities on these topics on 30 June 30, 4:15pm SA time.
Many of you now have experience teaching online and we are eager to get your thoughts on how we might be able to globalise our virtual classrooms and engage in research collaborations. Your input is invaluable to our ongoing connections and partnerships. Please join us.
