The Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the higher education systems in ways that make visible problems that already existed but that previously were not fully noticed . The pandemic can be understood as an event that inspired social and subjective reflection aimed at a redefinition of the university curriculum . The closure of universities, which began as a preventive measure, has forced professors to reorganize their work through virtual methods and environments . The teaching methods required during the pandemic have eliminated professors ’ centrality at the university . However, the change from a face-to-face model to a virtual one is not the core problem; rather, the problem is how professors and students can turn the new forms for their relationship into opportunities for emancipation.
