2020 WISE Awards Celebration

Building the Future of Education: Conversations with Resilient Innovators -- REGISTER HERE

The COVID-19 crisis has become a reality around the globe for the foreseeable future. As the academic year has started around the world, parents, educators, and policymakers are grappling to anticipate and adapt to the ‘new normal’ in education. The education sector had to make a shift from short term reactive approaches to proactive solutions that reach as many learners as possible in light of all the changes that affect an already struggling sector.

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, serious questions have been raised about the resilience of our current education systems. As the education sector transitions into their new redefined efforts to educate, it is more important than ever to listen to and learn from innovators who have created cutting edge solutions to education problems around the world. It is more important than ever to bring attention to the solutions they have fostered in their localized education contexts.

The theme of the event, ‘Building the Future of Education’ reflects on the idea of thinking about education innovation proactively and not reactively. The discussions will highlight the efforts undertaken by educational innovators to ensure they provide access to quality education from birth until adult learning and everything in between.
