The past year has challenged all of us in many ways and the education sector is still experimenting with remote teaching as half of the global student population is still affected by full or partial school closures. Teaching professionals have had to adapt to extended periods of minimal social contact, of working from home, of altering lesson plans, of home-schooling their own children and their students at the same time, and of learning new digital tools
to support teaching and research. We have had to be resilient and creative during these hard times.
This conference was held to provide a forum for sharing the latest ideas and developments, best practices and principles with regards to conducive and supportive environments needed to enhance teaching and learning from the misalignment between resources and needs to the reality checks we must all come to terms with in regards to leadership and management strategies in the new norm.
The Global Education Conference and Postgraduate Colloquium 2021, organised by Universiti Tun Abdul Razak offered an avenue for educationists and education enthusiasts from all over the world to meet, learn and network with peers and experts as they discuss the challenges and solutions of global education amidst the pandemic in its widest sense, across disciplines, methods and cultures
