Integrating Australia with Asia
It is believed that many questions are expected to be answered in this spectacular gala of education in which mavens of education will interact, discuss and brainstorm on various issues. In recent years, we have seen an over hype of how globalisation & digitisation are re-shaping higher education & training. But is the higher education & training ecosystem in 2014 radically different than what it was in 2013?
Let's look at MOOCs – While 2012 was called as the year of the MOOCs, soon enough 2013 became the year of the backlash of the MOOCs. What will 2014 be called in regard to MOOCs?
What does globalisation of higher education & training mean? Is it dissemination of knowledge on a global scale at one end? Or is it simply getting more overseas students at the other end? Or opening more international branch campuses?
What then is the state of higher education & training on the ground in US, India, Hong Kong, Chile, Australia and other countries – especially in regard to impacts of Globalisation & Digitisation? Don’t get bother over these enigmatic questions. Join on 4 June at Edu TECH 2014 in Brisbane for the Integrating Australia with Asia Conference on how globalisation & digitisation are re–shaping Higher Education & Training.
Listen to and get your questions answered from prominent leaders from a number of countries and understand higher education/training environments in various countries strategize on how best to participate in higher education/training opportunities in other countries assess student exchange, faculty exchange & joint research opportunities understand education technology partnership opportunities internationally Or simply to network with over 5000 education practitioners attending EduTECH.
