Access and Equity: what have we learnt from the pandemic and what should we be doing about it?
Past Webinar - 22 February 2021 - 16.00 CET
In the third of its webinars the MCO collaborated with WAHED to deliver a webinar on Access and Equity. More than 100 people participated from almost 60 countries, thereby reflecting the broad geographical spread of the Observatory.
This webinar reflected on what universities have learnt from the pandemic. It included findings from the Sutton Trust report - University Access, Student Success and COVID-19 in a Global Context (November 2020). It followed with examples from the USA and India about actions which have been taken by universities to increase access and equity to inspire universities to seek ways to remedy the current obstacles. It concluded with insights as to how a values-based approach might lead to a more effective solution to the current challenges.
