How Will Emerging Technologies Influence Personalisation, Efficiency, Costs, Ethics and Trust in Online, Open and Distance Education?

Date Thursday, Nov 28  Time   –    Room Potsdam I

This panel recognises the costs and the benefits of using emerging technologies to deliver high- quality, data-driven, personalised educational experiences. The members will discuss pressing questions relevant to higher education institutions, educators, learners and ethicists alike. If big data, blockchain, AI are on top of your agenda as well, then be sure to join the conversation. We will look at emergent technologies and their roles in the educational experience; the educators' ethical responsibilities in applications of ICTs; geo-political trends of ICT developments; students' view on big data; and more.
