THE-ICE Webinar Series is intended to support THE-ICE members with sharing information related to how individual member institutions are delivering programmes under the COVID-19 crisis. All members are encouraged to participate and share strategies, platforms, and techniques they have utilised, including details of approaches that have been particularly successful but also areas, subjects, and modules where they have yet to find a solution.
