This Education Conversations deliberate the theme ‘Education Post the Covid-19 Pandemic’ where experts on the ground and learner/s will be invited to share their experiences and plans. The topic will be focusing on three key questions:
- Are we getting back to the old normal or has the teachings of the pandemic guided us towards a new normal and the possibilities it offers?
- How has the lockdown changed the dynamics of teaching & learning?
- Are we any closer towards transforming education for a constantly changing world?
