The book contributes to the debate on experiences during the pandemics by portraying the virus's continued virulence, education disruption, impact on the social and economic sectors, medical concerns, and local and global responses. The book provides a variety of stimulated innovations within the education sector, approaches in support of education and training continuity, the accelerated changes in modes of delivering quality education, distance learning problems and the promising future of learning. Case Studies from different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America have examined the massive efforts made in a short time to respond to the shocks to local and global education systems. The research chapters provide experiences and new perspectives of stopping a learning crisis from becoming a generational cataclysm.
In Addition to BCC in-house publications, our faculty members, Fellows are involved in writing and publications with others as well.
The current pandemic has caused a cataclysmic disruption in the ‘daily routine’ across the nations and sectors. The damage this crisis has brought to lives and economies is unimaginable. This pandemic is a wake-up call to bring about systemic and structural changes to deal with such unanticipated menaces that can bring the world to a sudden halt. This book attempts to contextualise and examine the nature of the ongoing pandemic. The experts who have contributed to the book analyse key geopolitical and technological aspects of the COVID-19 crisis.
