The Forum was held as an online webinar and was focused on how European and Eastern Partnership Country (EPC) universities have responded to the changes in teaching and learning (T&L) that have come about because of the Covid-19 crisis. Herewith it was analysed what was done over the past year to support university communities in addressing key challenges of T&L, as well as a chance to reflect on what lies ahead for university T&L in the future. It highlighted the key findings of the recent experience of PRINTeL Project partners on innovative and technology-enhanced T&L in times of Covid-19.
