COVID-19 and the Universities of Asia

How Agricultural Universities in Tropics Affected and Overcome from COVID-19?

 

After the Coronavirus pandemic, people lifestyle has been drastically changed all over the world. These days, news media already reported part of the information how to affect people’s life in Tropical Asian Countries, however, we still did not understand and could not reach sufficient information on how university communities affected and how student’s/ teacher’s lifestyle and teaching style were changed. Particularly agriculture and forestry universities have experiments, practical training, and fieldwork research/ education in rural areas. In this context, there have been various trials and errors in the implementation of education and research.

Therefore, we would like to hold the webinar on how did teachers and student’s life change in Tropical Asian countries under the Coronavirus. Understanding the situation of university communities in Tropical Asian countries during the Coronavirus pandemic and considering the way forward to post-Coronavirus.
