Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations // The COVID 19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education system in human history. This has brought far-reaching changes in all aspects of our lives. All public and private schools had to shut the doors of their schools following government directive. The pandemic has unmasked substantial inequalities in the education sector. Some institutions engaged their students through online teaching, a large number of students who are less privileged or are in rural areas are left out. The pandemic has affected all levels of the education system, from pre-school to higher education. The need of the hour is to innovate and implement alternative educational system and assessment strategies. The COVID 19 pandemic has provided us with an opportunity to pave the way for introducing digital learning. The paper provided answers on how governments and institutions of learning in Nigeria have scaled up teaching and learning to make up for the disruption and strengthen education. How tertiary education can build the systems and processes for lifelong learning and what government can do to prepare teachers to meet the challenges of the 21st century and create a sustainable educational infrastructure that is resilient in the face of the pandemic. // Paper ID 9998
