7th Greater China MOOC Symposium: Challenges and Opportunities of Online Education under COVID-19 (GCMS 2021)
It is our pleasure to announce the launch of the 7th Greater China MOOC Symposium: Challenges and Opportunities of Online Education under COVID-19 (GCMS 2021), which will take place online on 25-26 August 2021.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, CTLE of the University of Macau would like to invite you to join us in this cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary symposium, an opportunity to review, share and showcase the reactions, adaptations and innovations different practitioners in the Greater China region have put in place under COVID-19.
In the past 15 months or so, teaching and learning in the higher education sector has experienced waves of unprecedented challenges brought about by the pandemic. All stakeholders have had to perform changes and adaptations of varying degrees.
In this online symposium, the keynotes and session presentations will cover a wide range of sub-themes and issues related to online education, such as pedagogical design, technology, policy, infrastructure and support, in the context of a global crisis of public health.
We extend a warm welcome to all interested parties to participate in the symposium. We believe that this symposium will provide an excellent opportunity to advance communication, collaboration and exchange among academics, researchers and practitioners. Please join us on 25-26 August for the 7th GCMS.
Register for this online event before 8 August 2021.
