School of Transnational Governance

Extra space for learning

Using a mix of face-to-face and digital methods to their full potential, the EUI School of Transnational Governance's (EUI-STG) takes its teaching and training activities to the next level in pandemic times.

Innovative teaching methods and state of-the-art digital equipment have infused the start of the academic year 2020-21 at the EUI-STG with enthusiasm, despite difficult circumstances.

The COVID-19 pandemic posed a notable challenge for the School's work, and the launch of its new master's programme in Transnational Governance in particular.

Determined to offer all new master’s students, fellows and other course participants the best possible experience in line with current health regulations, the School implemented a sophisticated hybrid system combined with creative thinking. This approach allows both learners and teachers to participate in courses either at the School or online and still feel part of the STG community.

The School’s Villa Pagliaiuola was equipped with cutting edge facilities such as videoconferencing rooms and an interactive whiteboard that guarantee a dynamic and safe learning environment. At the same time, faculty and students together explore and discovere ways of learning, teaching and researching  beyond their expectations.

In this way, no one has to miss out learning because of travel restrictions, personal health conditions or mandatory quarantine measures. Last but not least, the hybrid approach allows the School to adapt quickly to changing public health conditions, ensuring the wellbeing of all involved.
