Delegates from all over the world who attended the Tenth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies.
The promise of e-learning is to make learning ubiquitous. There are several layers in this promise. One is to make formal learning accessible beyond its traditional sites of geo-location. Historically, these were cities, large and sometimes small. Another layer is to extend the range of informal learning--just in time, in just the right place, just when needed--hence, the range of self-help courses, training programs, and embedded, on-the-fly learning opportunities in online environments. What does this mean for cities? Will "smart cities" still dominate the educational environment in the digital era? Or will spatial geolocation be displaced by "virtual cities" where teachers, learners, platform developers, and instructional designers work collaboratively across extraurban virtual space? In this conference, researchers, teachers, and designers will explore these questions. And importantly, to what extent are these practices extensions of legacy pedagogies and institutional forms? Or do they foreshadow radical disruption?
The Tenth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers. The 2017 EmergingScholar Awardees are listed below.
