COVID-19 as a Prism to Reexamine the Past and Imagine a New Future
Netta Avineri, Associate Professor, TESOL/TFL and Mahabat Baimyrzaeva, Associate Professor, Graduate School of International Policy and Management.

COVID-19 has forced us to reexamine our reality on foundational issues such as inequities, democracy, and education. How has the pandemic exaggerated and exposed our limits, illusions, and doubts and how has it shaped and reshaped our perspectives and actions? In this WorldViews talk, Professor Netta Avineri and Professor Mahabat Baimyrzaeva discuss COVID-19 as a prism to critically view the past and the future, with an eye to leadership, higher education and pedagogy, media, and public discourse.
