Yidan Prize Asia-Pacific Virtual Conference: What will education look like in a post-pandemic world?

Event details
  • September 16th, 2020, 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM
  • Country: Online, Hong Kong SAR China

Is it possible to socially distance in a classroom? Will virtual learning eliminate economic differences in education – or exacerbate them? What does the research tell us about students’ mindsets in times of crisis?

Like many sectors, education is at a crossroads. For this year’s Yidan Prize Asia-Pacific Conference, we invite you to consider the options with other experts from governments, universities, corporations and philanthropic foundations.

We’ll be hearing from Mr Nadiem Makarim, Indonesian Minister of Education
Mr Makarim will share his perspectives on which issues need to be addressed first. We’ll also be joined by expert panellists from Hong Kong SAR, India, Norway and the Philippines: an international line-up to share ideas with global impact.

To take part, please book your place by 11 September 2020

Bringing changemakers together since 2018

The Yidan Prize Conference Series exists to bring experts, practitioners and educators together for frank discussions on education. As the landscape of learning recovers, now is the time for these conversations – both on the system-wide problems at play, and the potential solutions to alleviate them. So we’re proud to bring you this conference in partnership with the Centre for Asian Philanthropy and Society (CAPS).
