The Pandemic and the forced switch to more technology-enhanced teaching has enabled teachers and students to learn new skills in learning, the question is will it stick around as the recovery takes hold?

Many parents and teachers feel hybrid teaching is here to stay. And, that the skills learned during remote instruction are useful for face-to-face learning too. Nothing replaces a high-quality teacher though. It really is the pairing of that high qualified, highly skilled teacher with the tools that they should have access to, that can really help them elevate the learning in the classroom. How students are assessed is also changing. There have always been fundamental differences in education systems from country to country, but is digital education and Edtech solutions forcing some realignment and much needed standardisation across regions?

We will hear from leading experts about the opportunities and challenges in this transition period that is taking place on a global scale. The niche but growing digital badge market segment within education is one such area as is the continuation of long-distance learning MBA and executive online courses. We will hear from, global business schools, educational related business service providers, and academics on how the education sector is shaping up. Will it be more accessible, more attainable, and affordable in future? What comes next?
