Professor Graham Kendall, CEO and Provost of the University of Nottingham Malaysia, has been invited as a speaker to discuss The Changing Face of Higher Education Post COVID-19 in an event organised by the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC). The event was held from 4 to 5.30pm on 2 July.

About 98.6% of the world student population has been affected by COVID-19 and this webinar is aimed to help the audience have a better grasp on how higher education institutions and students are responding to the pandemic.

Apart from Professor Kendall, other speakers at the webinar are Fu Ching Yee, Director of QS Kuala Lumpur; Professor Dato Dr Ansary Ahmad, Founder of Asia e University; and Datuk Ir Dr Abdul Rahim Hashim, Vice-Chancellor at Universiti Malaya.

Together, they will discuss how their respective institutions have been shifting towards online learning, the learning curve and what is needed in the future to adjust to this new normal.

Professor Kendall said: “This webinar is a good platform for educators to come together to discuss the current challenges and opportunities that we have been facing and to also plan for what the future may hold for the higher education industry.”
