Event description


In a world where the rapid pace of technology change is affecting all industries, the way we learn and adapt to that change is fundamental to a successful future. It is critical that we prepare students for an uncertain and rapidly changing future, but also engage with business leaders to help them to adapt and thrive and support staff to meet the challenges of technology driven change.

The Future of Learning experience:

A one-day conference on 9th July 2018 will provide the community, businesses, educators and youth with the opportunity to explore some of the changes anticipated in the future of learning, connected to exponential technologies and the changing world. With an opening keynote from Knowledgeworks and several keynotes during the day, each speaker will link back to the way in which technology contributes to the future of learning from a deeply human perspective. See for full programme and list of speakers.
