COVID-19 pandemic has shaken all sectors and all countries without exception. Even though technology is all over us, we have faced unprecedented challenges to adapt to this new reality. Education is the pillar of the development of any society and in the pedagogical domain, this pandemic came to expose the gap on educational demands to assist both the educators and the students (https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A52020XG0626%2801%29; Unesco, GEM Report, 2020). As such, higher education institutions will need to develop a new value proposition that reassesses the quality of learning and delivery mechanisms in the classroom, and that addresses the needs of an international student population that may be less willing to cross borders for the sole purpose of study (OECD, Education and Covid-19, 2020)
In this context, the concept of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and the creation of technological solutions to use either in or outside a physical classroom, gain a new meaning and are proposed in this project. In this domain, educators need professional development aiming at fostering digital competences and ways to implement these new tools.
Simultaneously, understanding how students use technology for educational purposes is also explored to adjust their needs accordingly. It is also very important for educators to get entrepreneurial education skills, and a clear understanding about the entrepreneurial competencies European youth needs to improve their employability and contribute to creating new opportunities, better jobs and solutions to the big challenges we are facing as EU and society.
