Post pandemic, what will be the evolution of higher education? Today’s students are more digitally connected than ever with most information accessible in different formats online. With knowledge more accessible than ever, what is the value of the traditional university and its academy? How can faculty thrive in such an interconnected world, and how can they ensure the value of a degree in the job market, as many employers are looking beyond the traditional degree as a marker of acquired skills. This panel will examine these questions, how traditional higher education can utilize the opportunities provided by technology and manage the transition.
