Here’s how online classes can bridge the current education gap for international studies



calendar


Studying abroad is a quintessential experience for many students. Each year thousands of students pack their bags and go to different countries for their higher education. This year the Covid-19 pandemic has wrecked the dreams of many. What now?

Universities worldwide believe that despite the spectre of Covid-19 looming large, there’s no reason for students to despair and give up on their study abroad dreams. Instead of waiting for universities to resume physical classes, why not opt for online learning to continue education during the ongoing pandemic.

What to look forward to?

Traditionally, university programmes have been intrinsically based around physical attendance of the students, and digital learning has remained a supplementary support mechanism. However, there is always a way if you look for one. Owing to the ongoing global crisis, academic institutions across the globe are transitioning to online education. Teachers are using online tools to keep their classes

International SOS Launches Online Tool To Help Assess Mental Health

Without seeing colleagues or employees face to face, in a room where you can assess body language and have a frank conversation, how easy is it to spot a mental health problem? Pretty tricky, according to International SOS. To help both employees and employers cope, the health and security specialist has launched a tool called “Spot the risk – mental health”.

The aim of the open access platform is to help organisations spot and tackle psychological distress. Through an interactive online quiz, it provides information on the indicators and influences on the mental health of an employee.

“With the current levels of uncertainty and pressures in many people’s lives, mental health awareness is a pressing issue for individuals and organisations alike,” International SOS Group Medical Director of Assistance Dr Neil Nerwich said. “Increasing knowledge, accessing professional support, learning how to cope with psychological distress and being aware of

The coming of the International African American Museum | Charleston’s Choice 2020

“People are known by the records they keep,” observed Pulitzer prize-winning writer and human rights activist Alice Walker. “If it isn’t in the record,” she continues, “it will be said that it did not happen. That’s what history is…a keeping of records.”

Walker’s dictum on the power of history and the utility of record-keeping and documentation has long inspired my philosophy as an educator, public historian and museum practitioner. For me, “keeping” African American history and culture, in particular, is not merely a vocation, it is a calling. The gravitational pull to document our stories for the next generation; to rescue our records and unvarnished truths from the atrophy of memory; and to “keep” our history for perpetuity is what drew me to the International African American Museum and ultimately to Charleston.

Before moving here two years ago, Charleston had long stood in my imagination as a charming city with

What a U.S. Liberal Arts Education Can Provide International Students

German national Tim Steinebach says he was interested in almost everything related to philosophy, but never really considered applying to a U.S. liberal arts college. That is, until an admissions officer from this type of college visited his school.

“I learned about St. John’s and immediately fell in love with the idea of reading 200 of the greatest books of the West and discussing them without the authoritative interpretations of secondary literature or lecturing professors,” says Steinebach, now a sophomore at St. John’s College in New Mexico, which along with its Maryland location, has a single academic program called the Great Books program.

Liberal arts colleges offer four-year degrees that are broad in breadth – providing the ability to explore other interests beyond an academic major – and are focused on the humanities, sciences and social sciences.

“The U.S. is the home of this style of education –
