Hybrid Learning Conference
2022 - Inauguration

Educationists from all over the world came together at Chinmaya Vishwa Vidyapeeth’s (CVV) 2-day international conference on Hybrid Learning to propose solutions for tomorrow’s educational needs. The conference was inaugurated on 06 May 2022, the birth anniversary of Sri Adi Sankara, at the University’s Veliyanad campus which houses the maternal home of the great guru.

Prof. H. H. Lau, Pro-Chancellor and CEO of Swinburne University, Australia, delivered the keynote address introducing the gathering to the concept of hybrid learning and its benefits and challenges. His concluding message, quoting Dean Kamen, on how a new technology and a big idea to address an old problem can be combined to be an innovation, set the tone for the upcoming sessions.

Pujya Swami Advayanada, Trustee of CVV Trust and the President of Chinmaya International Foundation, invoked the blessings of Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda upon the endeavour and spoke about the holistic view of the learning process in Indian knowledge traditions. Prof. Ajay Kapoor, the Vice Chancellor of CVV, expressed the need for technology to be used for individualised learning.

Other distinguished speakers included Dr. Sunitha Granthee, Director, Centre for Excellence in Research and Applied Indian Knowledge Systems, and Dr. Pramod Dinakar, Head of the School of Ethics, Governance, Culture and Social Systems. Interestingly, there was also an impromptu panel discussion showcasing how connectivity challenges can be overcome, especially relevant to a conference on hybrid learning conducted entirely in hybrid mode.
