Theme: A CALL FOR ACTION: DISRUPTIVE LEARNING and the FUTURE of PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION EDUCATION and RESEARCH. 

Public administration education is a key determinant of the operation of public administration held by the government-of-the-day. Public Administration education in South Africa must extend beyond teaching to tangible forms of learning. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the strengths and weaknesses of public sector policies and processes. As societies have battled to contain the pandemic, the public sector has had to rely on tried and tested strategies to innovate on forging new alliances and governance processes. In doing so, the notion of professionalism is at the core of good public administration practices. Professionalism is the observance of set standards/qualities and possibly a code of conduct. It exemplifies acknowledged practices in a profession, which entails specialised knowledge acquired after extensive preparation and training academically. In this current era and the future, new challenges and opportunities emerge for us to think anew in achieving efficiency in this dynamic field.
