Solution description

We created a bottom-up tool for students to reflect on which level they could participate on ad hoc measures during the crisis when universities had to completely switch to Online Learning and below. With these questions and categories, students can go through a systematized process of reflection and create recommendations for reaction for more student participation to get into conversation with university management .

Solution target group

Students - can initiate a bottom up process for more student participation in all topics covering digital learning at university.

University Management - get feedback and recommendations for action.
