Delegates from all over the world who attended the Eighth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies.
The digital revolution represents a sea change in the nature of learning and education. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are transforming academic research and scholarship—introducing an entirely new platform for knowledge and learning. Alongside cloud computing and virtualization, artificial intelligence and high performance computing are now poised to fundamentally reshape the nature and scope of education. Despite this new high-tech environment, there remains significant concern about the capacity of contemporary education systems to adapt to technological innovation. The University of California at Santa Cruz, Common Ground Publishing, and the e-Learning Conference present “The Future of Education” as the special focus for the Eighth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies. At this conference, participants will discuss the global knowledge economy and changing labor markets, and focus on the need to fundamentally rethink the way technologies can support new pedagogies, new learning environments, and new institutional configurations.
The Eighth 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 Graduate 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.
