Info & Interest form

Education is undergoing a great amount of change not only due to the advancements in technology but also due to the change in people. New technologies are implemented in education such as virtual reality, augmented reality and machine learning. Tools such as automated skills assessment, adaptive learning, and automated writing feedback will become more and more common. The universities are moving more and more towards virtual classes, adhering as much as they can to the schedules of the students, implementing the concept of on-demand learning. The educational system as we know it is changing at a rapid pace.

The goal of this Think Tank is to create a research agenda for education academicians.

Main objectives of each theme/track will be:
To identify major forces driving change and to estimate the timing of these changes, and

To generate a series of research questions for academicians (to help the industry copes with these changes better.

To create groups to write academic papers to address the challenges and opportunities of the future in education
