“The OEB Global Virtual Experience will be stunning. It will offer participants a very comprehensive programme of discussions and networking that will last a complete week and with direct access to global experts in a way never experienced before. They’ll be brought up to speed on how to deliver top quality online learning effectively in the most challenging environments. They’ll get a huge amount of training and knowledge. And they’ll learn from the world’s leading experts.
The European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, will be joining us. And there’ll be 13 plenary sessions with a line-up of world renowned experts, such as Andreas Schleicher, Director for Education and Skills at the OECD; Pak Tee Ng, Singaporean Educator, Nanyang Technological University; Asha Kanwar, President and CEO of the Commonwealth of Learning; Bitange Ndemo, ICT Champion and Prof of Entrepreneurship at the University of Nairobi; Jane Bozarth, Director of Research at the Learning Guild and many more.
We will have over 120 sessions in different interactive formats on diverse topics, such as tips for remote learning strategies, virtual and hybrid classrooms, XR in Education, digital ethics in training & education, “Global Snapshots" on what is happening in Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and Africa to name a few” said Ms Stromeyer.
Other big themes of the conference include ‘implementing and scaling up’; ‘design and delivery’; ’data and learning’; ‘assessing skill and competence’; ‘supporting workforce performance’; ‘the new L&D’; ‘tech triggers’ and ‘education futures.’
A major focus of the conference will be on the experience of lockdown and how schools, colleges, institutions and businesses have coped with the need to expand or develop their virtual learning environments and to engage students.
