Theme of the Month: Shaping the World through Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Leadership with Resilience in the Global Higher Education in the Post COVID-19 Era
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the world economy, the global governance system, the international political landscape, and the global higher education. However, from a historical, dialectical, and systematic perspective, the interdependence of human survival still exists, the basic development elements of maintaining the global economy and the global higher education will not be swayed by the virus. When MOOC was launched in 2008, it was only twenty-five students attended the course on the campus of the University of Manitoba while 2300 from around the world participated online. Hardly anybody could predicate that over one billion students around the world must study online courses currently after 12 years of the birth of MOOC. With outbreak of COVID-19, technology enhanced learning and digitalization have been rapidly adopted globally by education institutions which play a key role for the continuity of the education and learning. Not only so, more emerging online innovative universities have begun to penetrate the global higher education systems which post challenges in changing the traditional university model of 800 years old. No doubt, this unprecedented impact caused by the pandemic would ultimately lead to a great revolution in the global higher education. However, digital university, mystery, or reality? could the online innovative model substitute the traditional one? Could the vision and mission of the university be delivered without compromising the quality?
Universities and colleges in the global higher education develop the highly skilled working force and contribute to the research and development capacity for innovation and entrepreneurship that determine competitiveness and sustainability in the knowledge-based global economy. In the post COVID-19 era, internalization and global engagement continue to be crucial. Collaboration and competition are intensifying simultaneously under the growing influence of market forces and the emergence of new players. How will global higher education evolve over the next 20 years? How can governments and education institutions take the challenges and make the most of the opportunities in the post COVID-19 era?
The world is now a different place to the one we knew. We need to be more imaginative and creative when socio-economic paradigms break down as they are currently doing. There is an opportunity for innovation and experimentation. Innovation changes the world and innovation is very important part of a larger, evolving, social movement that is creating novel solution to the current dysfunctional paradigms of the global higher education. So, there is opportunity for the global higher education to tackle the digital landscape and identify solutions, new working approaches, innovative services and processes that create positive change in the global higher education with lasting efforts into the future.
You will hear fresh perspectives from our distinguished speakers, education leaders on innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership with resilience in the global higher education in the post COVID-19 era.
The main goal of this series of innovation forums is to explore the new normal and rethinking of the global innovation trends, opportunities and challenges in the post COVID-19 era, inspire current and strategic thinking, provide a platform for exploring linkages and mechanisms, and explore appropriate and effective modes of maintaining peace, embracing innovation and sustainability, strategic alliances between governments, universities and global firms, international trade, knowledge transfer and knowledge sharing, culture creativity and technology innovation and collaboration globally. Our intent is to provoke creative and innovative ideas, by bringing together various stakeholders, including academics, researchers, university presidents, deans of business schools, corporate leaders, policy makers, venture capitalists, managers, and senior students for exchange of ideas, research findings, current experiences, best practices, and lessons learned. The intellectual lens will rotate around addressing various questions of new normal and rethinking of global trends, opportunities and challenges in the post covid-19 era with a focus on maintaining world peace, dignity and equality in a healthy planet.

Profile of ELITE Innovation College Cambridge (EICC)
Our College was born during the pandemic with a mission to lead and push innovation. ELITE carries impact and significant connotation. ELITE is an acronym of e-learning of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship within an O2O Innovation University in the global higher education. Almost all the universities and colleges are currently delivering courses online based upon the MOOC experiences since the outbreak of Covid-19. Our intention of establishment of ELITE O2O (online and offline) Innovative Education Platform is an exploration of an innovative education pedagogy of integrating the delivery of programmes, knowledge, contents and education ethos with a global vision embedded in the teaching and learning strategy built into the technological system of O2O innovation university.
Such a system demonstrates how various features and objectives of innovative and entrepreneurial university can be created, translated, articulated and achieved. The distinctiveness of this system is to highlight that the teaching and learning mode is decided not only with the impact of the virus but also by the nature of knowledge. Explicit knowledge is delivered online while tacit knowledge is transferred through face-to-face. ELITE Innovation College Cambridge (EICC), in many respects, is regarded as a globally-connected innovative and entrepreneurial university. With our forward-looking global vision we are well positioned with strong features in the global higher education in the 21st century.
ELITE is an acronym of E-Learning of Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship within an O2O innovation university in the global higher education. We are building four distinctive colleges based on the 15 years of scientific research and innovation accumulated by the [China Association for Management of Technology] (CAMOT) on the technology innovation platform of [ELITE Innovation College Cambridge]. Offline tutoring centers located in selected cities are closely connected. Through these colleges, at this stage we can build strong competitiveness and core advantages together with other academic colleges of the university.
Our O2O Structures
We continue to deliver our legacy and carry forward our footprints, our research philosophy and educational ethos and stress the organic and intrinsic linkage among attributes and/or factors between and among innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and global leadership and their complementarities. Hence our globally-connected university with strong features has been underpinned by the four pillars to enhance the student journey and employability:
· Global leadership
Our teaching and learning pedagogy is to explore how competitive advantage and unique set of knowledge and skills can be delivered through strategic management of innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and global leadership and the organic linkages between and among them in business and management education and management practice.
By using our past experiences and global academic resources, we make every endeavour to convert this special knowledge into general education knowledge in the liberal arts education delivered though our well-crafted teaching and learning pedagogy in our well-established FOUR Colleges：
Camot College of Innovation
Camot College of Technology
Camot College of Entrepreneurship
Camot College of Global Leadership
Our college in many respects, is regarded as a globally-connected innovative and entrepreneurial university. With our forward-looking global vision, we are well positioned with strong features in the global higher education in the 21st century.
