The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for academic institutions. While many have been able to successfully make the switch to a digital learning environment, countless still struggle. This panel brought together teachers, students, and entrepreneurs from around the world to discuss how academic systems need to adapt to support the ever-changing environment. This begins an approach that ensures students are empowered in and outside of the classroom.
