More than 1.5 billion students and youth across the globe have been affected by school and university closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak according to UNSECO.
We have already been witnessing the immediate impacts of the pandemic on the university higher education sector and on stakeholders, institutions of learning and the educational system as a whole. However, some impacts, may not be immediately visible yet may have significant impact on the medium and long term.
The higher education sector like many other critical sectors had to quickly respond and navigate through the pandemic to ensure business continuity. Today, the sector is in need to play an even bigger role in helping the world get through this crisis; ensuring continuity, quality learning, inequity and that no one is left behind while planning for the future which remains unclear to many. It must learn from its experience and capitalize on the various lessons it has learnt.
Most importantly the sector needs to re-assess its assumptions and the way it used to do things, consider new approaches and models and come together to learn from one another and better collaborate.
The Panel will be of relevance to all those leading and planning the delivery of education no matter where they are located and will focus around:
Vice Chancellor, University of Pretoria, South Africa
Vice Provost for Teaching Innovation & Quality, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore
President & CEO, Higher Colleges of Technology, UAE
Vice President, Chippewa Valley Technical College, USA
Registration in the Panel Discussion is free and open to anyone from the higher education community wherever located. However, there is a maximum capacity to the session and slots will be allocated based on ‘first come first served’; hence we recommend early registration.
The Center may reserve the right to limit the number of registrations from the same institution to provide the opportunity to other institutions to join.
