LEARNING IN THE AGE OF GLOBAL MOBILITY
EDUCATION FRONTIERS IN A TURBULENT AGE
A three day summit at the University of Agder
At this 10-year anniversary, WLS will aim to provide new insight into the future of learning through the lens of global mobility. By that we refer to three interconnected social dynamics: 1) The role of education in societal mobility understood as improved social capital, 2) the challenge of mobility caused by and accelerated by technology innovations, and 3) the global trend of mobility understood as accelerated speeds of moving ideas, services and people. Increasing global mobility invites critical reflections on ethics, uses technologies and future spaces of face to face learning & education. Education and learning is local and place-bound but increasingly also global and mediated.
