Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined - Responses from education's frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond

DOHA, Qatar, Sept. 21, 2020 /CNW/ -- WISE, a Qatar Foundation global education think-tank, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar, and Diplomatic Courier, is pleased to announce the official release of a special E-Book titled: Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined – Responses from education's frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

The special edition E-Book was produced in real time, as WISE, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar, convened key stakeholders and education leaders from over 98 countries in a three-part series of global conferences aimed at bringing the global education community together. The result was a contemporary historical record of how schools, NGOs, governments, and international organizations responded to school closures during the crisis and how they are attempting to use this crisis as a springboard to reimagine – and even transform – education in their communities and countries.

The E-Book offers an opportunity to a global audience to make sense of what happened, but it also offers a breeding ground of ideas from some of the world's top education thinkers.

"It is our hope that this publication will provide the education community with a reference point from the crisis from which future research, policy, and innovation can grow," said Dr. Asmaa Al-Fadala, editor of the publication and Director of Research and Content Development at WISE.

Contributors include:

  • Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al-Thani
  • The Right Honorable Gordon Brown
  • Marc A. Brackett
  • Andreas Schleicher
  • Stefania Giannini
  • Manos Antoninis
  • Olli-Pekka Heinonen
