and dwelling in online water education
This post is written by dr. Emanuele Fantini, senior lecturer/researcher at IHE Delft.
Coronavirus pandemic has generated a global and rushed migration online of
education activities. This is a first post of a series aiming at reflecting on
the long term implications of this process: can we build on these efforts to
develop a coherent online education vision and strategy? As digital platforms
are the news spaces we live in most of our day, I will begin with a reflection
on two online courses I coordinated last year, inspired by Richard Sennett book
“Building and Dwelling. Ethics for the city”.
The post is
based on a seminar I gave in September to share the experience of two online
courses: Science communication skills for water cooperation and diplomacy,
within the project “Open Water Diplomacy. Media science and transboundary
cooperation in the Nile basin” and AfriAlliance MOOC Water and climate change
