Invitation

COVID-19 defined “the old normal” as “the new normal” for some: “Back to the classrooms and auditoriums” was the often-heard conclusion to two years of lock-down. For others, the future of learning and education rested and still rests on our ability to more fundamentally reorient the way we think about blended and flexible learning. Technologies are reshaping education, knowledge and learning. Education institutions are adapting – by intention, consequence. or both.

The other face of change is the challenge of interdisciplinary now emerging. Global crisis, deteriorating faith in social institutions and overflowing social media information tides are redefining our sense of timely knowledge. Wars and conflicts places education on the frontier of cultivating human rights, reason, sobriety, tolerance and inclusion.

What educational, pedagogical and transformational challenges emerge? World Learning Summit invites papers, talks, presentations and new members to our community. WLS 2023 is our 12th – read more about the 2023 calls on the menu above.

Summit themes, papers,
panels & workshops
...

World Learning Summit 2023 is our 12th annual event, starting out in 2011 with a first conference on the theme of education´s digital transformation. Education and technology is still an important theme for us, but we invite papers and workshops that contextualize uses of educational tools and platforms. Our mission is to explore and cultivate a sense of educational technology in context; the challenges that come with it, understood within the institutional challenges now facing education globally at all levels. These are big themes. And it explains why we try to keep the annual summit small enough for conversations and networking to matter. Please join us or contact us on the message platform at the bottom of this page.
