An exclusive online discussion for IT leaders and decision-makers in educational institutions in Singapore.

Predicting and Adapting to Education’s New Norm as an IT Leader

The outbreak of the coronavirus has become a major disruption to schools, colleges and universities, with most institutions cancelling in-person classes and moving to online-only instruction. This forced and abrupt move to remote learning has thrown up many immediate challenges for IT leaders within higher education.

But as well as the immediate challenges that most establishments have now faced and overcome, it’s what comes next as the ‘new normal’ that IT decision-makers are now looking to prepare and get ready for. We will be bringing together a select group of educational IT leaders for a virtual roundtable on:

  • What immediate challenges have IT leaders faced due to Covid-19 and what preventive measures have they taken?
  • What will the new normal for educational institutions look like?
  • What can IT leaders do to prepare for the new normal within the education sector?
