Description

The COVID-19 restricted the student’s mobility from attending classes on campus due to health concerns which increased the demand for online Education. This created an opportunity and an undeniable challenge to teach online and upskill the staff. Inclusive blended learning can enable partnerships between institutions of developed and developing countries to share content and resources to offer affordable quality education at scale. Lead India Foundation in association with JNTU Hyderabad Alumni Association has hosted a LIVE Zoom Webinar on The Impact of COVID19 on the Future of Higher Education. The expert panelists [see speakers below] will address the Challenges and Global Opportunities for Higher Education and make recommendations for consideration by the Governments and academic institutions.
