Turning Challenges into Opportunities: Research and Education Success Stories During Covid-19
Virtual/Livingstone, Zambia, 10-12 November 2021
The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic in early2020 brought a disruptive wave to the Research and Education community across the globe. As the virus spread and wreaked havoc the world over, governments ordered various levels of national lockdowns to curb the virus that has affected millions of people from all walks of life.
As the virus raged on, Universities and colleges suspended physical learning forcing learning institutions into a frantic search of solutions and remedies to sustain teaching and learning. While other institutions struggled to achieve this, several institutions of higher learning across the world quickly repositioned themselves and were able to deploy various interventions that enabled the continuity of the delivery of research and education.
Building on the theme for UbuntuNet-Connect 2020, “Repositioning Research and Education During Crises,” UbuntuNet-Connect 2021 will take stock of the milestones and success stories the Research and Education community has so far achieved in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Conference will be held as a hybrid event (online and physically in Livingstone, Zambia) from 10-12 November 2021. UbuntuNet-Connect 2021 will thus be held under the theme "Turning Challenges into Opportunities: Research and Education Success Stories During Covid-19".
