Event Brief:

As the pandemic has disrupted many aspects of life, students have been one of worst hit segments of the society. This is especially true for students who appear for high stake exams at the secondary and post-secondary levels, who are looking at their future with great deal of uncertainly. On the other hand, educational institutions, policy makers and managers have not only come up with a variety of responses to address this uncertainty, but are also using this as an opportunity to explore new and creative ideas to ensure that students can access quality education and achieve and demonstrate desired learning outcomes.

Habib University will be hosting a live panel with Dr. Shehzad Jeeva and Shahid Ashraf, whom as thought-leaders in the education sector, as well as being senior leaders in AKU Examination Board and Cambridge International Assessment Education – will provide their thoughts on how the Examination/Assessment Boards are viewing these challenges and what are some of their learnings that may help re-shape the high school learning and examination in future.

We request you to fill the form below and submit your questions for panelists in advance.
