Distance and Online Education (synchronous and asynchronous teaching) paired with questions relating to interculturality and multilingualism in a global business environmentHybrid education, with innovative delivery methods has long been part of UBIS practices. In recent times, education has fundamentally changed with evolving technology, both for distant and online teaching. This has allowed some applied research to be carried out regarding in-house best practices. With the Covid-19 pandemic, educational technology has become even more essential to any educational institution. UBIS is focusing on lessons learned both before and during Covid-19. Another interesting aspect is that — while the institution’s sole language of teaching is English — the majority of UBIS students are not native English speakers. Research around multilingualism in education is therefore relevant, especially when it is paired with the analysis and use of digital technologies serving education. Finally, it should be noted that the reality of students is very different depending on where they live. While technology is to be considered a normal reality in the Northern hemisphere, realities look somewhat differently in other parts of the globe. This has implications when it comes to teaching, as well as UBIS’ multinational student and faculty body. The experience-based constituency is a very pool of hands-on knowledge for applied studies on the availability, suitability and pertinence of different online and off-line teaching methodologies.
