Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to participate in an online conversation organized by ENOHE, the European Network of Ombuds in Higher Education, to consider the continuing effects of COVID on your universities and your work as Ombuds, and to look at how our institutions are adapting to ‘the new [ab]normal’.

Our first webinar in Covid-times took place six months ago when Higher Education was facing unprecedented and disruptive changes. Over the summer we hoped for a return to near-normal in the new academic year – but then the second wave broke.  Short presentations from four speakers from four different countries (Greece, Romania, England, Canada) will focus on the adaptations they have made to enable higher education to continue – and some positive changes which have come about as a result of new approaches.  Following this there will be an opportunity to discuss what is happening at your institution. How has Covid affected your role and your work as an ombuds? What new approaches have you developed for your work?  Are there positive developments that mean that you would not wish to return to the ‘old normal’?

This is a forum for ENOHE members and others to share and compare the experiences. It is an opportunity to learn from, network with and generate ideas from your colleagues.

When: Thursday 10 December 2020
Time: 1500-1630 CET
Language: English
Required:  Web access to Zoom 5.0

Josef Leidenfrost, Austrian Student Ombudsman
President of ENOHE
