Assoc. Dr. Gökben Hızlı Sayar: “With Covid-19, our symposium and congress habits have changed.”

Social Sciences Institute Director Assoc. Dr. Gökben Hızlı Sayar touched on the habits, that changed with the Covid-19 outbreak and the new norms of today. Hızlı Sayar told that; “Many habits have changed with the Covid-19 outbreak. Changing our symposium and congress habits is one of them. In the past, face-to-face congresses had the advantage of greater interaction. However, there were also disadvantages such as the limited capacity of acceptable participants, the low number of participants from outside the city, the obligation to be present in a particular venue, leaving some of our normal life responsibilities to attend the congress or symposium. In this online symposium, our hall capacity was unlimited, they could attend from outside the city, there were no transportation difficulties and no responsibilities were impeded. Around 800 people watched the sessions of the symposium on the first day. The advantage of online events, video recordings will continue to be watched and will reach more people as they continue to be presented in the digital environment.”

“We received high demand for a new symposium”

Assoc. Dr. Gökben Hızlı Sayar said the following about whether a new symposium will be held or not: “After we finished the symposium, there were many requests for a new symposium. June and February, for example, at the end of every academic semester, we plan to organize a symposium. That's about every six months. Let's announce it, to those who want to participate. Let them start preparing for the next research festival.”

“Gri Cevher (Gray Ore) Psychology Education Platform became a family of 5 thousand people”
