Speaking in an interview with news portal Lovin Malta, Economy Minister Silvio Schembri proposed that early-morning and late-afternoon lectures at the University of Malta should be accessible online for good. This was proposed in order to reduce the university’s parking problems which have been known to cause daily issues for all attending the institution. Interviewed by Lovin Malta’s Chris Peregin about MIMCOL’s economic vision for Malta, Schembri highlighted the movement of education from live lectures to online settings following the outbreak.
Despite not being sustainable for young children, tertiary level students can still make use of online education permanently. Schembri pointed out how the pandemic accelerated some developments and that they should not be scrapped as mitigations are eased. Learning online will be capitalised by targeting individuals wishing to pursue academic studies with Malta’s higher education institutions.
