Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities are closing in many countries, the face to face element of international activities and projects is suspended, and one of the many actions people are taking is social distancing. This moment demands a certain reconsideration of our activities and of responsibilities to ourselves and the communities we participate in.

We can not always travel and participate in onsite activities, but the technology is – or seems to be – already there to make a quick transition to online. Most universities are quickly moving education online, onsite conferences are rescheduled online, meetings are virtual, and people work from home, rushing into it incredibly quickly.

What are you doing in response to this massive shifting online?

How educators, staff members, and the education sector should be supported in this transition?

This webspace aims at collecting experiences, stories, ideas, emerging needs, quick fixes, or long term plans put in place by the UNIMED members and the larger community in response to the change brought by the COVID-19 emergency, in terms of online teaching and virtual approaches to international mobility and cooperation.
