New Delhi: To discuss a roadmap for the education sector post the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, thought leaders, policymakers, educators and industry experts will take part in a two-day education conclave commencing on Thursday, September 16.
The Lenovo Smarter Ed Conclave, organised by Hindustan Times newspaper, will focus on the National Education Policy (NEP-2020), the digital divide brought to the fore amid the advent of online learning during the pandemic, developments in technology in education, upskilling teachers, and on encouraging interaction with decision-makers across schools and institutes of higher education.
“There is a strong argument that education will never go back to the pre-pandemic time and technology is going to be as important as physical campuses. The focus on large physical spaces will shrink and a hybrid model of education involving a combination of classroom teaching and online lessons will find greater acceptance,” the organisers was quoted as saying in a statement by HT.
