Some comments on the disaster’s impact on the teaching and learning process

“We be of one blood, ye and I”― Rudyard Kipling, The Jungle Books

Since March 15, 2020, the whole training process in all universities (and in primary and secondary schools as well) has been rechanneled to the online format. The new learning model allows drawing some conclusions about the process of education digitalization taking place in one of the leading Russian universities, Saint Petersburg State University, over the past year. The University (as did the whole of Petersburg, which immediately closed museums, theaters, concert halls, etc.) turned out to be deserted without students and teachers: no noise, no laughter, and no discussions in the faculty’s classrooms, corridors and dining rooms.

World against COVID-19. Our colleagues' thoughts about the situation: Nada Kakabadse

Online learning creating mixed pressures for academics

The Covid-19 forced leap into online teaching is challenging many academics on personal and professional levels, says Nada Kakabadse, Professor of Policy, Governance and Ethics at Henley Business School.

Working from home used to be a privilege reserved only for the semi-retired, home-makers, the self-employed, or freelancers such as consultants, journalists, writers, graphic-designers and public relations agents.

Covid-19, however, has now made this practice the new norm for white-collar workers, just like so many others who are being forced to socially distance and self-isolate from the rest of the world.

World against COVID-19. Our colleagues' thoughts about the situation: Montserrat Guillen

The show must go on
Montserrat Guillen (Dept. Econometrics, Riskcenter, Universitat de Barcelona, Editor-in-Chief of the Insurance Markets and Companies journal).

As I am writing these lines, we are living the worst health problem many of us have experienced ever before in Europe. Too many humans are suffering, and meanwhile the words of a famous song by a British band called Queen have come to my mind: “The show must go on”. This piece was written by Brian May and Freddy Mercury in 1991, when Freddy was very ill; this is a hymn to endurance and devotion. May feared that Mercury would not be able to record the song before his death, but he did, and he did it in one shot.

Dr. Nikola Perovic, the member of the Editorial Board of Tourism and Travelling., April 1, 2020.

Covid-19 or the major natural disaster in early XXI century has made many of us work from home or, in my case, teach from home. As a university professor at the UAE’s largest university, I have many daily activities for delivering online classes, performing online exams and conducting online advising. Online, online, online.
