Forging a global community of learners
World Learning Summit is hosted by the research center and network Future Learning Lab, located at the University of Agder in South Norway. It is based on a previous set of conferences labeled Future Learning Annual Conference, which we have run since 2010 with growing numbers and all of them in collaboration with Stanford University as well as other international peers and returning friends.
In 2015 we launched our second five-year program with a summit at Stanford University — Future Learning 2020, in collaboration with the online learning provider EdCast. Among past speakers at our summits you will find Research Director Peter Norvig from Google, Stanford University Media-X Director Martha Russell, Deputy Director of Higher Education at the Gates Foundation Jason Palmer, former Creative Commons CEO Cathy Casserly, and many more.
