"Online Delivery, engaging and successful"

12 Jun 2020

The April 2020 Reintegration Workshops were delivered online due to the travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements of the current COVID-19 global pandemic. The two-day workshops, delivered in April, were interactive sessions facilitated by The University of Queensland.

Reintegration Workshops are a platform for scholars to reflect, review and modify their Reintegration Action Plans (RAPs).  During the workshops, scholars reflected on their scholarship experiences, the development of practical linkages, and actions to support successful reintegration. Discussions also included potential challenges and practical opportunities that lie ahead with the occurrence of COVID-19 and potential impact on their goals to contribute to more equitable and inclusive development in their countries.

The online workshops included a total of 55 scholars (including 33 males, four identifying as having a disability, and 22 females) who participated in at least one of the sessions across the workshops.

Of the 55 scholars, 47 attended regular sessions across the two-day workshops. The scholars were from Botswana, eSwatini, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
