About the Event:
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted education systems in unprecedented ways. The crisis exacerbated long-standing inequalities, revealed the limits of technology, raised questions about learning loss and recovery, heightened concerns about corporatization, exposed the value of teaching, and much more. There is an urgent need to envision the future of public education for a post-pandemic world. What lessons have we learned from the pandemic for public education systems in Canada? Moderated by SDS Professor Dr. Kristina R. Llewellyn, this session engages with education experts to discuss the impact of the pandemic on public education and ways to move forward to strengthen public education for all. Panelists include Dr Vidya Shah, Beyhan Farhadi, Dr Joel Westheimer and jeewan chanicka.

This event is generously supported by the Equity Knowledge Network.

Date and Time:
Tuesday November 16, 2021 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EST
