The COVID-19 crisis has led to the lockdown of educational and training institutions globally and the disruption of learning. Educators had to shift to remote learning by using online platforms, applications, and resources in order to continue with teaching and to communicate and connect with students and learners. Heritage Conservation was no exception. This webinar discusses the ways that heritage conservation learning has continued during the pandemic by highlighting the challenges facing this practical field and the learning opportunities for today and the future. The webinar offers an analytical dialogue on a range of topics concerning imparting essential skills in conservation, cognitive understanding of processes, and digital learning strategies and approaches.
