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

DOHA, Qatar, Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 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

WISE is also hosting a virtual session during the Global Goals Week, on September 29 at 3:30PM (GMT+3) to launch the e-book. Six of the e-book's authors will discuss the future of education in a post-COVID-19 world during this panel session.
