About the Podcast

NextNormal – The Podcast


In cooperation with the European Students‘ Union

What is the “NextNormal” of European student life? There will be a time after the Corona shutdown, and we want to discuss what it should look like. How can we learn from the digital turn in order to create a better future for higher education? In our podcast, we are talking to students and student unions from all over Europe about the “NextNormal” – the future of higher education beyond Corona. Each episode is dedicated to one European country. “NextNormal – WeStudy@Home” is a podcast produced by the NextEducation research group around Ulf-Daniel Ehlers at DHBW Karlsruhe and strongly supported by ESU.

We want to know what changed for you and how studying works for you in times of a global pandemic. What works, what is annoying, what are your special strategies for learning and also – how are you during all of this? In our podcast we want to talk about all of this with students: For students, interested people and everybody who has to do with education and higher education.

The people behind „NextNormal“ are working and doing research in higher education themselves – at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Karlsruhe.
