The last UDeL Camp of Tinel Project started on Monday 12th of April. All 16 participants (including Tinel project members) introduced themselves and started to work on the topic of universal design for eLearning and accessibility of blended and online learning. The forthcoming week will be full of great ideas, good practices, interesting discussions and, of course, challenges to be solved. In addition to the formal activities, we will have a great opportunity to get to know each other, learn one from each other and have some fun together.

The coronavirus pandemic has given us new perspectives on online education. All higher education institutions are currently doing their best with their students who students who cannot be on campus, so are at home and possibly in other countries in other time zones. Many staff members have found new ways to support their students during this exceptional time. Luckily, at the same time we have found new tools and technological solutions to support our teaching and UDeL practices: automatic captioning of videos, the use of online video conference for live teaching, just to name some of them. Addition to UDeL practices and these new solutions, during the online camp we will meet students, who share their experiences and tell us about good practices that can support their success as higher education students.

The international group of organizations in the TINEL Project helps us to recognize that we are all struggling with the same kind of challenges everywhere in Europe. Building up the international network and sharing good practices offer great support to the TINEL partner institutions in implementing good and accessible education for all. We learn so much from each other.
