In this sixth episode of „NextNormal – WeStudy@Home“, we talk to Vittoria Messina and Lucrezia D’Annunzio from Italy who are also engaged in UdU, Unione degli Universitari. We learn that the difficult situation created challenges, such as staying motivated and focussed when studying at home, but also funny and positive experiences, such as beginning a new study programme without having to move to another city. However, they emphasise the importance of ensuring a good learning environment for everybody and of digital literacy across generations.
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 working group at DHBW Karlsruhe and strongly supported by ESU.
