Feedback form is now closed.
The proposed event is centered around the impact that the COVID19 pandemic has had on South African Higher education institutions in a holistic perspective from a diversified students perspective. 

The workshop also aims to explore the varying dynamics surrounding mental health of students, the impact social class has and the further perpetuation of inequality in events such as the pandemic, innovative ways to evolve the education system into a system that can withstand the kind of challenges posed by the pandemic in the future and ways that we can align the curriculum of the Higher education system with the various industry requirements to maximize accessibility to the labor force. Lastly, the workshop aims to form partnership with international universities to share ideas towards a world class standard global education system. The workshop will be primarily presented by students to convey their stance on the abovementioned matters, and use it as a platform to appeal to the powers.

Keywords: Flexible education system, Mental health and human aspect in education, internalization, University-industry relations.
