“2020 – What a Year”
Greetings from the Director’s Desk and compliments of the season.
The ongoing COVID – 19 pandemics seriously affected our activities especially in 2020. Lockdowns that resulted in restricted movement of staff, facilitators, and students unable to meet. The Institute consequently deployed all its activities online. Fresh Applications for 2019/2020 was marketed exclusively online and all other requests from students were done remotely to reduce face–to–face interactions.
However, as devastating as the pandemic may seem, it brought to the fore the need for Resilient Education – which is by nature, planned and prepared for disruptions caused by crisis of various nature, such as flooding, earthquakes, pandemics or conflicts/war. Proof of resilience is that learning can continue despite the disruptions and that the necessary infrastructure, support systems competencies, and communication lines are in place. This need will inform our activities going forward in the post-pandemic era.
The report contained in this booklet is the activities that the Institute was able to accomplish between November 2019 and December 2020.
