Boardroom Dialogue HUM20
Technological Development to Aid Marginalised Communities
Date Thursday, Dec 6 Time – Room Glienicke
Students’ learning experience in particularly volatile and war-affected countries can be improved using blended online learning. Graduate students experienced in online learning and who become learning facilitators in their communities can serve as models. In this Boardroom Dialogue we will discuss how technology enhances access to higher education in marginalised communities and helps transform them.
