Be Informed

All are invited



As the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic continues to physically restrain face-to-face education, virtual and online solutions have developed overnight and continue to do so to provide quality learning opportunities for both education practitioners and students. As individual lives and even livelihoods of billions of people around the world, are severely affected , with educational institutions closing their doors – potentially for months – the need to ensure that equipping academic staff and ensuring student learning is far more significant than ever.

As a leader in applied education in the country, Bahrain Polytechnic has responded to the occasion immediately through the immediate training of its academic staff in the use of remote teaching and learning platforms and immediately engaging its current student cohorts resulting in the resumption of classes, remotely.

The institution is now organizing a forum geared towards bringing together varied communities to share their best practices in line with virtual teaching and learning in the current situation. It is meant to be a supportive learning event where essential takeaway lessons could be shared . The planned communities to be invited here would range from academics across all education levels, parents and even students.

The forum will also address the effect of this pandemic on the future of jobs, where some sectors will be changed with a serious focus on technology.
