MEETING DEMANDS ON HIGHER EDUCATION IN A CHANGING WORLD
Panel 1 - Curriculum for Global Citizenship post COVID-19
All citizens aspire to live in peace in an increasingly interconnected and complex world. Global Citizenship Education (GCED) is UNESCO’s response to these challenges, it aims to prepare young people for academic success, global marketplace, and Global Citizenship. GCED can be delivered in educational institution in a variety of subjects and activities for students to acquire global skills, competences, and values.
The recent COVID-19 pandemic has challenged Universities and institutions of higher education all over the world. Share with us the components of the curriculum in your institution that have had a meaningful impact on Global Citizenship Education and possible adaptations to the post COVID-19 world.

Panel 3 - How Will COVID-19 Affect the Internationalization of Higher Education?
The recent COVID-19 crisis has challenged Universities and institutions of higher education all around the world, forcing them to explore new learning and teaching options. It has proven challenging to both the professors and students. International Offices have also met their own challenges to develop alternative modalities of Internationalization. This panel will be a platform to discuss the impact, and the potential positive outcomes of the global lockdown on the process of internationalization of higher education.
