Bengaluru: Indian Institute of Management Bangalore and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay are jointly organizing the ‘Future of Learning Conference 2018’ to be held at IIM Bangalore on 15 and 16 January 2018. The conference aims to meaningful dialogue between academics, policymakers and technologists on the impacts and implications of digitisation of the learning spaces, we propose to organize this conference as an annual event. Through multiple plenary sessions, panel discussions and paper presentation, the conference attempts to establish connections across three major dimensions of the future of learning – namely pedagogy, policy and technology. The conference is supported by institutional partners like NPTEL, British Council, NSRCEL and SWAYAM and is co-chaired by Professor Deepak Phatak, IIT Bombay and Professor PD Jose, IIM Bangalore.
The keynote address will be delivered by Mr. Nandan Nilekani and the conference also features more than 50 education leaders from industry and academia. With multiple research and practitioner tracks for paper presentations, more than 30 academics will be sharing research insights on the future of learning. The conference will be followed by a post-conference workshop for a select group of faculty on MOOC Production and will be conducted by IIMB faculty and MOOC experts.
