CAUSINDY ONLINE: EDUCATION
Education delivery has changed dramatically since the outbreak of COVID-19. In this panel, experts in the education sector in Indonesia and Australia will discuss how students, teachers and other education stakeholders are adapting to the changed landscape, and what it means to no longer have student mobility between our two countries. The speakers will also explore how new perspectives gained from this experience can influence the education industry moving forwards, and how young Indonesians and Australians can meaningfully benefit from the recent coming-into-force of the Indonesia Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA).
The CAUSINDY Online Education Panel was streamed live on August 13, 2020. Missed the panel? Listen to the webinar recording on demand on the CAUSINDY Spotify page.
