Special edition e-book captures responses from education's frontline during Covid-19

Wise, a Qatar Foundation global education think-tank, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar and Diplomatic Courier, has officially released a special e-book titled Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined - Responses from education's frontline during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
Special edition e-book captures responses from education's frontline during Covid-19
The special edition e-book was produced in real time, as Wise, in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar, convened key stakeholders and education leaders from over 98 countries in a three-part series of global conferences aimed at bringing the global education community together. The result was a contemporary historical record of how schools, NGOs, governments, and international organisations responded to school closures during the crisis and how they are attempting to use this crisis as a springboard to reimagine — and even transform — education in their communities and countries.

The e-book offers an opportunity to a global audience to make sense of what happened, but it also offers a breeding ground of ideas from some of the world’s top education thinkers.

“It is our hope that this publication will provide the education community with a reference point from the crisis from which future research, policy, and innovation can grow,” said Dr Asmaa Al-Fadala, editor of the publication and Director of Research and Content Development at Wise.
