As the COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting the world, universities in many countries have shifted to distance learning. This type of learning will no doubt continue to shape the way future generations are educated even after this pandemic is over. Although distance learning has many advantages, unresolved challenges still exist for both students and teachers, and there is no better way to improve online learning experiences than by hearing from the students themselves.
We would like to invite all students enrolled in SATU member universities to join this year’s competition and shape future education together. This competition also echoes the 2020 SATU theme of “Forging Creative Pathways with International Education－Utilizing Local Resources to Diversify Outreach and Innovation.”
The 2020 SMART 2.0 Challenge will incorporate student input concerning how best to improve distance learning and will focus on the following:
l Identify up to five (5) important problems being widely experienced by distance leaners
l Develop innovative solutions to overcome these problems
The main objectives are to initiate changes that can help our students and future generations to have better distance learning experiences. And we are very happy to say, even during these difficult times, that our students can still participate in the 2020 SMART 2.0 Challenge virtually and further develop their talents.
Please encourage your students to register online by 24th, June. We thank you in advance for you kind support.
