[Postponed] Unleash! Forum for Educators @Learning & Teaching Expo 2020 – Unleash

[Postponed] Unleash! Forum for Educators @Learning & Teaching Expo 2020

December 2020

Due to the current Covid situation, the event will be postponed.


The global COVID-19 epidemic has revealed the uncertainties, complexity and unpredictability we are facing, and created the new order and new normal of life, work and study. Today, the education sector has to reflect on how they should revamp the existing curricula and systems to help the next generation get well prepared for the unknown challenges, and to proactively create their own future.

While many frontline educators are trying to adapt to the new teaching mode and new normal after the pandemic, some foreign educators have been boosting the creativity and adaptability of students through design thinking so that they can cope with changes and challenges easily. Our overseas guest will share their experience and insights during the event.

Free admission. Limited seats are available in a first-come-first-served basis! Register Now
