Lawrence Wong lays out 3 areas where universities can do better

As Covid-19 pushes learning institutes to transform, universities in Singapore must disrupt themselves or be forced to do so. Education Minister Lawrence Wong stressed this as he laid out three areas in which Singapore universities can do better – in teaching and learning, embracing lifelong learning, and collaborating with industry. He was speaking at The Straits Times Education Forum 2021 on Reimagining Universities, Post-Covid, held in partnership with SMU on Feb 5. The forum, held online this year, examined the ripple effects of the coronavirus pandemic on higher education and the changes that it will forge.
