The ‘Australia-ASEAN Academics Forum: Online Education during COVID-19 and Beyond’ aims to examine the readiness and challenges of online education in 10 ASEAN countries during COVID-19, the high quality practices of online education at an Australian university and selected ASEAN universities, and the mutual benefits of engaging in an academics forum to enhance online teaching in higher education in both Australian and Southeast Asian contexts. To achieve this aim, it will bring academics in Australia and in 10 Southeast Asian countries together in an online forum to discuss the practices and challenges of online education during COVID-19 in five disciplines including education, humanities, health, ICT and economics and showcase the best online teaching practices at the University of Tasmania and selected Southeast Asian universities. The online forum will be organised in two rounds in June and September 2021.
The ‘Australia-ASEAN Academics Forum: Online Education during COVID-19 and Beyond’ is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia-ASEAN Council of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and administrated by the University of Tasmania from November 2020 to August 2022.
The ‘Australia-ASEAN Academics Forum: Online Education during COVID-19 and Beyond’ acknowledges the traditional owners of the land where this program was developed, the Palawa people of the Lutruwita Nations. We pay respect to the traditional owners and to elders past, present and emerging of the land on which all the University of Tasmania campuses stand. On behalf of the University of Tasmania, we acknowledge all countries participating in this forum and also acknowledge their Elders and Ancestors and their legacy to us. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands where our partners and participants live and work across Australia and Southeast Asia.
