SUMMIT THEME: LEARNING IN THE AGE OF GLOBAL MOBILITY
WLS 2020 Invitation
Welcome to World Learning Summit 2020. The theme this year is LEARNING IN THE AGE OF GLOBAL MOBILITY: We travel more, we reach further, we collaborate in ever-deepening networks of academia and academics – connecting through local, regional, national and global spaces of learning. Studies and student flows are globalized, digitalized, and networked.
At the same time; our world is increasingly a turbulent place. Extremism is on the rise, in part a reflection of related kind of mobility: Migration. People on the move is also an aspect of people on the move away from something: Whether that be wars, conflicts, floods or other kinds of disasters, the younger generations question current policies for sustainable social change, advocating policies that take the future seriously.
In the aftermath of deeply disrupting media changes since the 1990´s, education and learning is affected by the forces of digital transformation, globalization and mobility: More people than ever are on the move, between countries, between pasts and futures, between desolation and promise, between chance and planning, between adventure and personal fulfilment.
Join us to explore these challenges for learning and education in a world of global mobility. How do we understand the challenge and how can we as scholars and innovators in higher education collaborate to move forward? As usual, World Learning Summit offers research paper presentations, workshops, world-level keynotes and ample means of networking with new and returning WLS attendees.
