During the past few months of the Coronavirus emergency, many venues that university professors routinely use to share teaching experiences or disseminate their research have been interrupted or limited to varying degrees.
As a pro-active response, the University of Cincinnati, a strategic partner of the University of Trento, is now accepting proposals from professors from partner universities to take part in a series of on-line mini-conferences in English in front of a world-wide audience to showcase the work faculty are currently doing. Each conference focuses on a specific theme and lasts approximately 15 minutes.
The theme of the first mini-conference is Best Practices for Innovative Teaching and Engaging Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic and will take place on Thursday, October 29th, 2020 between 7:30 AM and 9:30 AM (United States EST).
For the first conference proposals must be submitted by Tuesday, September 8th, 2020 using the University of Cincinnati submission platform (bit.ly/UCVirtualMini).
For subsequent mini-conferences it is possible to propose other topics from various academic areas related to responses to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If interested, please send an e-mail with a brief description to international [at] unitn.it
