The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people consume media and entertainment and like the rest of the economy, this sector is also witnessing a significant disruption of business.

While the long-term implications are yet to emerge, questions on how this industry will adapt to the new consumption pattern in the short-term have already popped up. There are questions on how the teaching-learning pattern in Media Schools needs to change post COVID-19. And, what will be the future of offline events?

Clearly, there are questions galore. To seek these answers for you, ABP Education brings to you a Media Educators’ round-table, via a Live Webinar on June 6. Register here for free.
