During a three-day hybrid online and face-to-face conference organised by Jijel University, scholars from around Algeria and the UK came together to discuss the challenges and opportunities of online learning since the pandemic.
Introduced by the Rector of Jijel University, Noureddine Ben Ali Charif and Professor Said Chawki Chakour, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and organised by Dr Hanane Bechta of the Faculty, the conference raised important questions around access to education in times of crisis, balancing technological solutions with care and welfare for students, and how to effectively plan for the future.
As part of our sustainability training, a major focus of the discussion has been around the traits, qualities, types and forms of leadership. In continuity of the programme an online workshop was organized early October 2021, participants were asked to consider which Algerian leader inspired them. Whose experiences and achievements have helped them to reach their own potential, to engage in reflections about the future, to protect their local environments or to innovate and create new models for sustainability in Algeria?
