Book Co-Edited by UKZN Alumnus Explores Future of Higher Education Post COVID-19

Will university education ever be the same after the COVID-19 pandemic?

That is the focus of a book titled: The University of the Future: Responding to COVID-19, co-edited by Professor Dan Remenyi.

The book explores the many solutions for this problem and how moving forward, universities such as UKZN will respond not only to the pandemic but to the many years of uncertainty ahead.

‘COVID-19 has changed many aspects of society and one of the most affected is education. Universities are rapidly moving to online programmes but it is not clear that this is the answer to the problem,’ said Remenyi.

The prolific author is the co-editor and a contributor to the newly published book that features expertise from vice-chancellors, academics, and consultants. It is a collection of broad views from 32 authors from 17 countries on five continents.

Remenyi says the book is of value to both students and prospective students and their parents as it examines a range of issues that everyone should be aware of when undertaking university studies.

‘For some years universities have been under pressure to modify their approach to teaching and research. The COVID-19 pandemic is triggering profound changes in how universities function and forcing them to think more carefully about a number of aspects of their operation,’ he said.

The book – available in both print and PDF format – is available at https://www.academic-bookshop.com/ and on Amazon.
