COVID-19 Webinar series

Everyone is still heavily engaged in the response to COVID-19 but what does an eventual return to BAU look like? We are turning to our institutional members and business partners to run a series of webinars that will specifically focus on the recovery phase of our crisis management plans at a time where workshops are not possible. Never waste a good crisis, if you have any thought leading concepts to share we welcome you to get in touch.

Institutional and Associate members we want to hear from you if: 

  • You have any thought leading concepts that can turn this crisis into an opportunity to ensure our institutions come out the other side of this experience in a stronger position.  For example: 
    (i) what post-COVID-19 teaching models/spaces look like i.e. is a live lecture theatre still relevant and/or necessary; what can a lecture space be converted into;
    (ii) with the transitioning of teaching some new courses to an on-line model for the first time can your institution use this as an opportunity to make that change permanent? 
    (iii) is this an opportunity to take under-utilised spaces off line and not returned to service? 
  • At a time when we will also be working in an environment of severe financial restrictions, do you have any examples of innovative thinking that others could learn from.
  • You have examples of, or experience with, a disaster recovery process that you would be prepared to share with other TEFMA members.
  • You have any suggestions or concerns about how to develop a plan for a return to BAU that you want to share with other members or have included in the conversation.

Business Partners, we want to hear from you if: 

  • Your company has expertise in disaster recovery and you would like to share this with our members; 
  • Your company is involved in service delivery, whether it be operational or capital in nature, and you have been impacted by the downturn in business caused by COVID-19, we would like to understand how we can work together to get back to BAU in the most efficient and effective manner; 
  • You want to participate in an online conversation that will help to uncover important issues that should be considered by members and business partners during the recovery phase.
