Post-pandemic: Change Education for the Better. 2021 Cambridge China Education Forum has now opened its free online registration!

About this event

2021 Cambridge China Education Forum (CCEF) would like to cordially invite you to learn about and discuss topics related to ‘Post-pandemic: Change Education for the Better.’ The forum aims at providing a platform for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, and industry to engage in meaningful dialogues on challenges and opportunities in the post-pandemic era. To learn more, please go to CCEF Website

The forum will be held online on the 24th (Saturday) and the 25th (Sunday) of July 2021 (BST). The two-day forum will host four panels:

Education and Equality

Technology in Education

Education and Wellbeing

Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum.

The forum anticipates 50 guest speakers, and 2,000 registered participants including scholars, young researchers, school leaders, and other education practitioners from China, the UK, and beyond. We hope to explore two key issues from an interdisciplinary perspective:

• How has the pandemic impacted education, in practice, theory and policy?

• How can we move education ahead after the crisis of pandemic?

In June, we have a series of Pre-forum Lectures given by amazing scholars around the globe. Please see the following schedule for preview:
