Learning at scale, access to education, blended learning
Chief information security and digital trust officer, Arizona State University
Higher Education is now globally networked. Arizona State University, USA, has a bold strategy to provide open education in collaboration with a constantly expanding network of peer institutions internationally. Donna Kidwell will share key insights from ASU´s strategy and process.
At our May 2022 session on UN sustainable development goals and how they challenge institutions of higher education we laid a foundation for reflecting on new forms of institutional collaboration and open education in the context of multimedia pedagogy and media literacy.
Engage with us to discuss institutional strategies and bottlenecks.
And take a look at one of Donna Kidwell´s main ideas here:
As more of our learning, working and living takes place in the digital realm, what and who do you trust? ASU Information Security and Digital Trust (ISDT) is grounded in transparency, security, privacy and empowerment to foster relationships of trust: trust between our institutions, learners and staff; trust between learners and employers; trust between our institutions and the workforce.
ASU’s ISDT leads work and initiatives that uniquely influence our constituents’ experience of digital life. We aim to lead by example with our own commitment to digital trust by providing transparency and clarity around our practices that require trust.
Educational inclusion, inclusive education, tarbiya, internationalisation, social justice
Senior lecturer at the Faculty of Education and the Head of Quality Assurance Institute of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Indonesia.
What is the meaning of inclusive education in a changing world? What in particular does it mean for تَرْبِيَة (tarbiya) and social justice as Indonesian Muslim Schools increasingly feel the pressure of adopting international curricula? Tarbiya can mean active student participation in their own education, the experience of flourishing and lifelong learning. Relatively little is known outside of the country itself about the manner in which inclusive education is discussed in policy and schooling.
In the latest iteration it is the use of international curricula and assessment offered by Cambridge Assessment and equivalents that has attracted domestic attention. This domestic-facing internationalisation is worth considering as a signifier of inclusive education and raises the question of identity: Islamic, Indonesian and global – what does it mean to be included in the country as a citizen and to have accessible, quality education? Is it to be able to be measured on a national, school and pupil level against other nations? What is Indonesia trying to achieve?
This presentation takes a critical look at the issue of social justice and its effect upon تَرْبِيَة (tarbiya) in the Indonesian education eco-system. Experiences of Muslim parts of this system suggest multiple signifiers of inclusive education; that might translate to global debates in other educational eco-systems.
Learner-centered technology, transforming universities, blockchain, game based learning, post-COVID reflections on blended learning
Each presentation will last for 30 minutes with a few questions at the end, followed by a joint 30 minutes conversation covering all issues and topics raised –

Education and learning technologies come in different sizes and shapes, meant for different purposes. Many of us who work in institutions of higher education would probably agree that no matter how different our institutions may be, we face many of the same challenges. Beyond the Silicon Valley euphoria and COVID-19 experiences, we are institutions, transforming.
In this webinar we have invited back Phil Komarny, who is known to many in our network but new to others. Moving from a role as Vice President of Innovations at Salesforce, in San Francisco to his current role as Chief Innovation Officer at Maryville University of St. Louis, Phil will engage in a dialog on how COVID-19 spurred Maryville University to think along new lines. Along with Phil Komarny is Phil Long, a long-time friend, peer and collaborator on projects across the entire country
High School teacher extraordinaire from Austin, Texas, David Conover has explored game based learning and learning designs deeply, for a long time. Please find his extensive CV here. Among other things he was recognized by the Obama Administration for his approach to teaching students at risk in the Austin region.
David has promised us some short insights into some of his current projects:
Media literacy, digital skills
Director at ZeitGeist (Education, Media and Culture) and International Co-chairman at UNESCO MIL Alliance
Critical media literacy concerns our ability to navigate increasingly complex information flows. We talk of ‘polarization’, ‘fake news’, ‘misinformation’, ‘propaganda’ and much more, but how does all this relate to education as a global challenge, if not to say learning in the context of sustainable communication?

World Learning Summit is an annual conference organized by scholars and learning innovators, dedicated to scholars and innovators sharing a concern with the future of flexible education and life long learning in a world impacted by the twin forces of globalization and digital transformation.
Our next location-based summit happens in May 2023, where we will pick up on our pre-Covid tradition for staging conversational conferences building networks and sharing experience.
World Learning Summit moderators are for the most part former keynote speakers at our various events. Brief info available for each one, below:
