More than 50 scholars from 20 universities, think tanks and academic institutions partook in the discussions, and 14 of them delivered speeches, including participants from Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Laos, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Nantana Gajaseni, vice-president of Thailand’s Mae Fah Luang University, made a keynote speech on "Learning Transition Under the New Normal."
Focusing on the internationalization of higher education and talent training, experts discussed how to transform the education model under the new normal in the post-COVID-19 era, as well as the unique challenges and opportunities that higher education faces.
They attached great importance to international cooperation in professionals' training, suggesting providing students with high-quality general education, enriching their extracurricular opportunities, cultivating their personality and social adaptability, and expanding foreign resources.
Also, scholars discussed the international exchange of professionals and innovative development in the post-COVID-19 era.
They suggested carrying out online diversified recruitment and job hunting, maintaining public service support for high-level talent mobility, and creating a multilingual communication environment for international students. These steps should help to overcome the almost stagnant global flow of professionals due to the pandemic.
