Talk Title: We Are Ready for the New Normal of Higher Education
Abstract: The term 'new normal' has become a ubiquitous catchphrase that has come into our lexicon in various professions since the Covid-19 pandemic. As universities prepare for the new normal, online learning has become an indispensable part of higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic era. Although students and their families may lament the loss of social life on campus, there is no need to dread online education. If we can adapt new technology and pedagogy to bring remote students together for meaningful interaction, online learning will not become isolated learning, but instead, a transformational opportunity to nurture a more resilient and tolerant generation during times of global crisis and social unrest.
