Teaching Models for the “New Normal”

Dr. Magreth Mushi

Friday, July 17, 2020

10:00-11:30 AM via Zoom


As the world continue to figure out how to proceed after the spread of COVID-19, traditional teaching and learning have stalled in many countries and educators are looking for practical models to continue teaching and learning remotely. Based on the challenges posed by COVID-19, it is well understood that our traditional ways must change, and we have to embrace the “new normal”. In this talk Dr. Mushi will highlight those challenges and discuss the importance of digital transformation for the “new normal” and teaching models that should be embraced moving forward. She will also touch on the roles of different players (e.g Government, NRENs, educators, etc) in this transformation process as well as share her experience as an educator and education service provider in Tanzania.
