Invitation to participate in the online 29th EAN Annual Conference

We live in exceptional times. All over the world governments, higher education institutions and other organizations are figuring out how to organize our society in the post-pandemic period. What can we learn from COVID-19, what are the opportunities, and what are the pitfalls in deciding how to organize our future society. To be able to do this a good analysis is necessary. COVID-19 brought many challenges. EAN, which focuses on widening participation, is one of those organizations.

With this conference, we want to look at the challenges and the opportunities presented by the pandemic. How will higher education institutions in general and higher education in relation to widening access in particular cope with the impact on access to higher education? What has/will widen the gap, and where are the opportunities to close the gap?

 

Timetable of the conference

The conference will be organized in form of five panel sessions of duration of max. 2 hours. Each session will be chaired and moderated by a leader of a pre-conference workshops where some conclusions will be formulated. Ideas, proposals on each topic will be prepared and distributed to the participants of the EAN Conference. The fifth session will be prepared by student organizations and the exact title will announced in the second circular. The participants will have opportunity to express their opinions.

The number of participants in each session is limited to 300. No fees will be charged. The platform for online panel sessions will be prepared and operated by the Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) in Poznań, Poland. AMU will also prepare a registration panel for the participants of the panel sessions. 

The address of the registration webpage will be given in a second circular which will be sent in the second half of August 2020.
