The desk research on the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and blended learning in higher education will include research on the current stage in higher education during Covid-19, the change management processes, difficulties, novel perspectives and challenges to deal with. The method of desk research will be applied with comparative and critical analysis.

Research on the measures and activities that the UKLO and UAS Burgenland applied for adjusting the educational process regarding Covid-19 will be conducted to determine what these two institutions have undertaken to adjust their teaching and learning processes. Through a critical review of the implemented measures and activities, the research team will come to conclusions that will be the basis for future recommendations.
