The COVID-19 outbreak has deeply affected the education sector in Cambodia. Schools were required to close and teaching in classrooms was suspended for several months. As a result, many young students were obliged to study and take their exams online. The adaptation of schools and the higher education system has been vital to fulfil their role. A new organisational system based on many news practises was implemented to maintain the quality of teaching by using digital tools to a great extent.
At the same time, online meetings and virtual trade events have become increasingly popular. Businesses have had to adapt to rapid changes and have endured struggles along the way, therefore they could learn from the education sector and their experience.
In this webinar, our expert speakers will be describing how COVID-19 has shaped new ways of teaching and the lessons they learnt from using digital tools.
The webinar is limited to 100 live participants only. Please make sure to REGISTER EARLY to guarantee your spot!
