Thought Leader Questionnaire: Higher Education during COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in drastic changes to higher education around the world. In most countries, in-class teaching was discontinued overnight. In this moment of profound institutional irritation, the question arises as to how universities react to this, which strategies for digital or remote learning are being adopted, and what long-term consequences the crisis can have for higher education.
To answer these questions, the Global Learning Council has initiated the “Thought Leader Questionnaire: Higher Education during COVID-19”. The study explores these questions from a governance and organization point of view in an internationally comparative perspective.
Across seven world regions, members of leadership of 30 institutions of higher education have been selected to participate in the two-step survey. The final results will be published on this page.
Participating institutions will also have access to preliminary results. If you feel your institution would provide a valuable perspective and should be included in the sample, please reach out to Christian Kobsda.
