Education is one of the crucial keys towards a better future. In sharing knowledge and empowering learners, access to education can ultimately transform lives. To date, not everyone has access to education, let alone to a quality education in light of SDG 4 that enables learners to make informed decisions, take responsible action towards a sustainable future and respect cultural diversity. The pandemic has laid bare the insufficiencies and inequalities in our education systems. But there is opportunity to build back better and reimagine a new era for learning and pedagogy.
The Times Higher Education University Impact Forum on Quality Education will explore how universities, can shift their focus to building a more inclusive, equitable education for all. In a keynote, York UniversityĀ“s UNESCO ChairholderĀ Charles Hopkins will address new perceptions of what constitutes quality in education, the potential role of higher education in a resilient recovery and exploring new emerging purposes of education itself.
