Well-being among Thailand’s ‘Lost Generation’ of Students during the Covid-19 Pandemic in Southeast Asia
REGIONAL SOCIAL AND CULTURAL STUDIES PROGRAMME WEBINAR
Well-being in Southeast Asia Webinar Series
About the Webinar
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on virtually every aspect of well-being across the world in various populations. It disrupts essential service provision in every sector, including education. Additionally, there are growing concerns that this Covid-19 crisis will potentially lead to a ‘lost generation’ of students due to widespread closures of education institutions at all levels. This comes in the wake of a sudden shift in education delivery approaches, such as the move from school/campus-based learning to online learning, as well as many other unexpected consequences arising from this pandemic. The Thai education system and its students have been profoundly affected by this situation. This presentation will examine the following:
1) The overall impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Thai education sector and student well-being;
2) Related public policy and government measures, and the responses of Thai educational institutions to such measures;
3) The ‘new normal’ of the Thai education system in a post-Covid-19 world, along with public responses, emerging problems and their potential policy solutions.
This webinar is supported by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.
