Responding, adapting and socialising online
Whether "fall semester," "autumn trimester" or "Michaelmas," the first term of the academic year 2020/21 started with an open, socially-distanced campus for most of the students, faculty, researchers and staff at the eight universities in the CIVICA alliance.
In response to changing pandemic conditions across Europe in late 2020, CIVICA members switched to the virtual space, building on the lessons from spring to offer an improved online educational experience. The pandemic challenged everyone to respond not only with optimised e-learning solutions, but also with opportunities for students to participate and interact, both inside and outside the virtual classroom.
At the Stockholm School of Economics the fall started off with a hybrid solution where students could attend some classes in small groups, while other classes were held online. As the pandemic situation worsened in Sweden, e-learning became the primary teaching model again.
Here is a look at the photos and stories from the fall term across the CIVICA alliance.
