Digital Technology and the Post-Pandemic University

Wednesday, 21 October 2020

This online conference by the Society for Research into Higher Education’s Digital University Network inquires into the ‘new normal’ we face in higher education, as well as the role which digital technology has and will play in bringing it about. It is clear that digital technology will be essential to teaching, research and administration under these conditions but it is far less obvious what this will look like in practice. Furthermore, the online pivot is being undertaken at such speed and under such difficult conditions that strategic considerations risk being subordinated to the imperative of keeping the university operating at a distance. 
This online conference brings together political, sociological and technological questions which speak to our uncertain moment and the many questions which face us as we move forward. It includes panels on university futures, the online pivot, pandemic pedagogy and comparative perspectives.
