Edtech and the Future of Business Education:

Co-creating best practice

Technological advancements profoundly impacts our societies, the future of work, the skills and capabilities that are needed and the ways in which we require them.

Edtech is changing the environment in which higher education is operating, offering both challenges and new opportunities in the way in which we approach teaching and learning. This new socially driven, digital age requires a fundamental rethink of what higher education is, as well as the skills, practices and technologies required for this new age. The Edtech Forum will provide the opportunity for European Universities and Business Schools to share knowledge, lessons learned and insights gained.

Building on from last year’s theme; “from strategy to practice”, we are putting together an inspirational schedule of presentations and workshops to illuminate, share, discuss and “co-create” best - and evolving -  practice in higher education. Our pedagogical practices are continuously evolving with new technologies and opportunities, including AI, chatbots, data analytics, VR and personalisation. Our focus at this forum is on how these changes affect our practice.

We look forward to an engaging and interactive Edtech Forum in Oslo on the 9th of November 2018. The event is kicked off with an informal dinner the evening of the 8th.
