AmCham reactivated our Education Committee which gathers individuals from different organizations and institutions who have an interest in education-related matters. This Committee is designed to be friendly, helpful, and supportive, where Members can exchange information and ideas, and can discuss pressing matters relating to education. The past year was extremely tough on our institutions, and the Members expressed that they would like to use AmCham to strengthen voices and facilitate dialogues.
The Committee’s theme this year was “Education and the path to recovery from COVID-19” and they identified five goals for 2021-2022: establish contacts with government partners; share best practice in online teaching and blended learning; facilitate professional training and development in the COVID-19 environment; develop and internship program; and network among and between the education sector and other sectors.
The Committee hosts regular events, including a series in best practice in education, and allows different organizations to spotlight some of the exciting activities they are undertaking.
