The BUP weekly

Dear BUP friends,
It has been some time since our last weekly and it might seem like not so much is happening at the moment. But behind the scene, we are working hard to prepare the upcoming year with new activities and projects. Together with centre directors, board members and project partners, we are planning for new ways to work, that will both be suitable during the ongoing pandemic and beyond.
One such project is the digitalization of courses and how online education can be combined with classroom activities and conferences. We will soon announce our plans on some of these projects, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, you'll find the latest news below.
With best regards,
The Baltic University Programme’s coordinating secretariat
