In this month’s episode of the Director’s Corner, Prof. Bartel Van de Walle is joined by Prof. Edeltraud Guenther, Director of UNU-FLORES, our sister Institute in Dresden, Germany. They talk about the long-term impacts of the pandemic on education, returning to work, and tactics to keep their staff inspired.
Some of the topics discussed in this podcast are:
– What challenges did both institutes face during and after COVID-19 and how did the two UNU Institutes cope and adapt? How did the Directors themselves adapt?
– What changed, and what remained after the crisis? Is hybrid education unavoidable in the foreseeable future?
– What is the function and purpose of the UNU Director’s Lab as a coordination and communication channel?
