Keynote Speakers

Digital technologies have had profound effect within the field of education, transforming teaching practice, delivery, and assessment on a global level.  In the ASEAN region, new methods such as blended or hybrid learning, the use of massive open online courses (MOOCs), and real-time student assessment, have been adopted by both individual teachers and educational institutions alike, challenging notions of the classroom space as static, and enabling educators access to new student populations.  Yet, amidst the dizzying speed of development, there has been growing concern that the benefits, efficiencies, and equity promised by the ‘digital revolution’ have not been uniform.  Some suggest that new digital technologies have exacerbated existing inequalities, furthered divisions, and challenged the ability of institutions to educate the whole person.  The ASEAN region, projected to be the 4th largest economy in the world by 2030, is also a steadily growing incubator of digital talent.  How will this talent be used in the coming years?

Co-presented by the United Board and Soegijapranata Catholic University this two-and-a-half-day conference will explore the unique challenges and opportunities facing the ASEAN region, with sessions designed to highlight the innovative ways in which colleges and universities leverage technological advances for the promotion of whole person education.  Featuring keynote and plenary presentations from leaders from within Asian higher education, paper presentation sessions, and workshops, this unique conference will provide an opportunity to receive insight from innovative leaders within Asian higher education in Asia, as well as the insights of technology pioneers within Asia.
