In this episode I had the privilege of speaking with Nunana Nyomi, Associate Director of Higher Education Services, Council of International Schools. In this episode we discuss how Higher Education has had to respond to the challenges of the pandemic by finding ways to holistically assess students, and not rely on traditional mass assessment methods. We discuss the context that led to Nunana’s article on how international education perpetuates structural racism and how anti-racism is the solution, and we also talk about the context that led up to the refreshingly honest conversation between Nunana and Jane Larsson, Executive Director of CIS, that followed this. The views shared in this interview reflect Nunana’s own and are not representative of CIS. Thanks for listening and enjoy the podcast.
