Abstract

Amidst a challenging pandemic, Kuwait has opted to close public schools and Kuwait University for nearly six months. Education has resumed with online modalities for learning and assessment, after a period of training for both instructors and students. The impact of this conservative approach on academic life, workforce provision and the evolution of the profession are discussed. Social aspects of the pandemic are also explored.
