COVID-19 Management in Tertiary Education Institutes [Industry Series]

The global COVID-19 outbreak has taken a toll on many industries all over the globe. Airlines, tourism, hospitality, and leisure facilities are massively affected and have grinded to a complete halt, and many service providers and retail outlets of all kinds have been forced to close or balance their business with the ‘New Normal’. 

But what about our schools and higher educational institutions?

Are the tertiary education institutes spared? How are our polytechnics, universities, technical institutes been handling the COVID-19 Outbreak? Everyone has a friend, a family member, a distant acquaintance in tertiary education who has been made to take up online classes during the COVID-19 hottest months, but can that be all that tertiary education institutions have been doing to safeguard lecturers and students alike?

If we see providing education services as essential services to it students, staff members, parents, education ministry and other major stakeholders, how does each institution “continue its critical functions” from a business continuity management or BCM perspectives.

Using Republic Polytechnic as a case study, this MTE webinar aims to share the precautions, measures and plans that tertiary education institutions have implemented in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. One major contribution is to learn how the higher institution innovates and evolve to the “New Normal” as COVID-19 is here to stay.
