Knowledge Pilot, Launch Global Education

As the summer kicks into full gear, the world of travel is exploding. In many ways, life seems to be returning to normal; however, the ramifications of the pandemic continue. It has been addressed within a variety of realms recently, including education. Attention has shifted from coping with the pandemic to ways the pandemic’s problematic outcomes in education can be rectified and how students can academically recover.

In our weekly breakout sections, the asset of time is once again addressed in our Tip of the week. And time is addressed in a different way in our Before you go section. Please take a minute to check them out.
