New seminars on conferencing and learning during the pandemic, a live visit to Aalborg University and learn new workflows for hybrid learning and contactless audio

Join informative discussions about conferencing and higher education in Sennheiser’s #DontStopTheEducation series! On 15 July, Aalborg University opens its doors – albeit virtually – to show you how a university with three locations handles audio and control requirements. On 16 and 17 July, a consultant round table will discuss the new normal in higher education and conferencing. To best account for the breadth of challenges faced in various regions, this round-table discussion is available from a range of global locations, with different panellists for each region. In addition, further online seminars from Sennheiser will be looking at touchless audio and hybrid learning, and the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone. All hosts and panellists are very much looking forward to answering questions.

Wireless Microphones at Aalborg University

Thursday 16 July and Friday 17 July – four sessions available for different regions.

In this 90-minute live round-table discussion, the panellists and hosts will take an in-depth look at the ‘new normal’ for corporate meeting spaces and universities and answer some of the most typical and pressing questions that have arisen in the wake of the coronavirus crisis: Are we ready for a post-pandemic technology shift to address the new social distancing norms – and what could this look like for online conferencing and e-learning? How do we continue being engaging and productive with travel restrictions and social distancing in place? And what new tech solutions and ideas would consultants wish to see designed and implemented?
