The Future of Learning Conference
Feb 24, 2014 to Feb 25, 2014
|Location||150 Day Street, 2000
|Details||Informa Australia, Australia's premiere provider of national forums for policy and professional discussion, is proud to announce a new flagship education event: The Future of Learning. This two-day national forum will focus on new approaches, technologies, environments and best practices in post-secondary education.
The agenda will address issues such as:
The changing market for post-secondary education: opportunities and threats
Learning priorities for the 21st century
Redefining and assessing learning outcomes
Reviewing new paradigms and learning approaches: the flipped classroom, personalisation/adaptive learning, gamification/virtual worlds, seamless learning, badges, first-year experience
Strategic T&L leadership: overcoming the cultural, financial and structural barriers to change
In addition, the event will feature dedicated streams on Work-Integrated Learning, Learning Space Design, E-Learning Strategy and Blended Learning Practice.
This new event aims to provide managers and leaders at all levels of post-secondary education with a broad strategic understanding of developments in the area of learning. In contrast to other events, our focus will be strategic rather than operational, with a particular emphasis on leadership, strategic decision-making, and practical issues and solutions.
