Resilient Education Systems

This research stream seeks to equip students for meeting future challenges in a changing world by exploring and understanding the underlying pedagogical practices.

It aims to understand the impact of the digital divide in regions and the gender gap that exists in STEM education and to explore measures to reduce these phenomena. Its analysis of the digital divide explores the impact on providing educational services in challenging situations such as the COVID pandemic.

By drawing on the recent advances in EduTech and AI, it explores ways to improve real-time digital interaction among students, teachers and staff for rich and smart learning experiences. Integrating technology and humans, the research will accelerate UN sustainable development goals.
