Education Innovation Conference

January 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The Education Innovation Conference takes place on 23 January 2018 in conjunction with the University of London. Full details are on the website here

“Education Innovation” could mean something different for an educator, a technologist, a corporate and for students whether in the arts or otherwise. We must find ways to accommodate changes in institutional demands, technology, pedagogical trends, political pressures, employability, and other challenges. How can the sector create a workforce that can do tomorrow’s jobs? How can edtech help?

There will be 200 delegates and speakers from the US, France, Netherlands, Israel, India, South Africa, Algeria, Oman, Rwanda and elsewhere confirmed, all exploring answers to such questions, with a particular focus on the next generation of education technology.

Speakers include:

• Dr Joanna Newman MBE FRSA, Secretary General, Association of Commonwealth Universities (UK)
• Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills, OECD (France)
• Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, Chancellor, University of Birmingham (UK)
• Dr Eric Zimmerman, Director of Research, Academic Secretary, IDC Herzliya (Israel)
