TiE DC presents:
New Reality & Impact of Covid 19 on Higher Education
Fireside Chat followed by Panel Discussion

Come hear from experts, thought leaders from renowned U.S. Universities and entrepreneurs & investors from the Education domain.   They are here to share their perspectives on navigating today's challenges in Higher Education.

We are in a moment of deep uncertainty. Higher education has arguably transformed faster in the past several months than it has in the past several years, out of sheer necessity. 

How is the higher education landscape changing ?
Long term / short term changes vs new norms?
How have students adapted to the new norm?
What changes are permanent new norms?
Online vs Hybrid learning?
Post Covid challenges in higher education?
What are the Investment trends, opportunities in higher education space?

We are fortunate to have a panel of experts, thought leaders and speakers to answer all these questions and much more.
