Keynotes

Nell Watson

Nell Watson is an engineer, educator, and tech philosopher who grew up in Northern Ireland. Nell founded Poikos (now QuantaCorp). This original, patented technology enables fast and simple 3D body measurement from only two planes (front and side), using a simple cellphone camera, by applying sophisticated deep learning technologies. This service enables fast and accurate personalization services in telemedicine, mass customization, and retail. Today, Nell Watson educates others in how to implement such technologies, for example, by creating video coursebooks for O’Reilly.

She is also Co-Founder of EthicsNet, a non-profit, building a movement of people who are committed to help machines understand humans better. This community acts as role models and guardians to raise kind AI, by providing virtual experiences, and collecting examples of pro-social practices.

Nell Watson lectures globally on (humanizing) Machine Intelligence, AI philosophy, Human-Machine relations, and the Future of Human Society, serving on the Faculty of AI & Robotics at Singularity University.

Invitation

EDEN is pleased to announce its 28th Annual Conference hosted by the VIVES University of Applied Sciences in Bruges 16-19 June 2019.
CONNECTING THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
In search for contemporary learning environments
How can information and communication technology in the age of Industry 4.0 create and enhance synergies between online learning programmes, the increased diversity of stakeholders, the workplace experience, socio-cultural influences and students’ work-life balance?
To transform the education landscape, challenges come increasingly from the socio-cultural-economic, structural and policy fields. Education has to be visionary to reach efficiency gains, new sources – and to offer sustainable services, reflecting the complexity of modern societies.

Market realities and social responsibility put similar pressures on the corporate and University worlds. Stakeholders expect academia to respond to needs beyond teaching and research, better promote innovation and the knowledge economy, manage the new student populations. Universities are expected to detect and attract talents, be magnet of inputs from practitioners, resulting cooperative surplus.

Educational technologies are about connections among information, knowledge, action, emotion and value: knowledge construction, learning activities by sharing and thinking, interactivity, aggregative mechanisms, cooperation and integration – to meet the requirements of the knowledge age, to satisfy the needs of social transformation and learning innovation.

The question remains: Which one(s) of these will have significant and sustained impact in the future? Can the network society become an enhanced learning society?

Conference Tracks

For the EDEN 2019 Annual Conference, the major tracks set-up will be:

  1. Global connections: How to organise online study programmes that enhance the students’ international competences, provide connections with international partners and promote virtual mobility?
  2. Connections with workplace: How can innovative study programmes be developed to involve the workplace impact and experience (virtual dual learning, (distance/digital) internships)?

  4. Connections with learners: caring about the work-life balance of the students, attentive to learners’ needs, expectations and the changing behaviour of diverse student populations including career, other studies, family-life.

Invitation

EDEN is pleased to announce its 28th Annual Conference hosted by the VIVES University of Applied Sciences in Bruges 16-19 June 2019.
CONNECTING THROUGH EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY
In search for contemporary learning environments
How can information and communication technology in the age of Industry 4.0 create and enhance synergies between online learning programmes, the increased diversity of stakeholders, the workplace experience, socio-cultural influences and students’ work-life balance?
To transform the education landscape, challenges come increasingly from the socio-cultural-economic, structural and policy fields. Education has to be visionary to reach efficiency gains, new sources – and to offer sustainable services, reflecting the complexity of modern societies.

Market realities and social responsibility put similar pressures on the corporate and University worlds. Stakeholders expect academia to respond to needs beyond teaching and research, better promote innovation and the knowledge economy, manage the new student populations. Universities are expected to detect and attract talents, be magnet of inputs from practitioners, resulting cooperative surplus.

Vocationalisation of education also means the emergence of new skillsets. The progress in industrial automation and ICTs opens possibilities for lifelong learning resource developments, for work based learning and integration of human-machine intelligence models.

Educational technologies are about connections among information, knowledge, action, emotion and value: knowledge construction, learning activities by sharing and thinking, interactivity, aggregative mechanisms, cooperation and integration – to meet the requirements of the knowledge age, to satisfy the needs of social transformation and learning innovation.

New generation of learning technologies and networks are ubiquitous, embedded and mobile which reshape access to and delivery of learning. Cutting edge fields are artificial intelligence, learning analytics, microlearning, new credentialing, revolution of assessment, massive open online courses (MOOCs), personalized learning, game-based learning, flipped classroom, Digital Makerspaces and alike.

The question remains: Which one(s) of these will have significant and sustained impact in the future? Can the network society become an enhanced learning society?

Conference Tracks

For the EDEN 2019 Annual Conference, the major tracks set-up will be:

  1. Global connections: How to organise online study programmes that enhance the students’ international competences, provide connections with international partners and promote virtual mobility?
  2. Connections with workplace: How can innovative study programmes be developed to involve the workplace impact and experience (virtual dual learning, (distance/digital) internships)?
  3. Connections with the community: How to organise study programmes that focus on relations of curriculum, delivery and the socio-economic environment – like community service learning, social partnerships, interdisciplinary projects?
  4. Connections with learners: caring about the work-life balance of the students, attentive to learners’ needs, expectations and the changing behaviour of diverse student populations including career, other studies, family-life.

Call for Contributions

Contributions are invited which resulted from own research, project achievements, case studies, theoretic and conceptual work onthe conference theme and tracks and the creative use of educational technology.

Submissions, taking into account the conference theme and related to at least one of the conference tracks are welcome in paper, poster, workshop or panel discussion session and demonstration/technical presentation formats.

Networking and interactivity, sharing and discussion will be core aspects of the conference, focusing on what you can learn from and with your peers.

Important Dates and Deadlines

Submission deadline for contributions: 4 February 2019
Notification of Authors: 9 April 2019
Registration opens: January 2019
Conference Dates: 16-19 June 2019

Conference Venue: Bruges, Belgium

Bruges, the capital of West Flanders in northwest Belgium, is distinguished by its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. Its port, Zeebrugge, is an important center for fishing and European trade. In the city center’s Burg square, the 14th-century Stadhuis (City Hall) has an ornate carved ceiling. Nearby, Markt square features a 13th-century belfry with a 47-bell carillon and 83m tower with panoramic views.

The Markt area also features horse-drawn carriage rides and 17th-century houses converted into restaurants and cafes. The Basilica of the Holy Blood houses a venerable Catholic relic, the focus of a huge parade every Ascension Day. Begun in 1220, the Church of Our Lady took around 200 years to build, and is home to a “Madonna and Child” sculpture by Michelangelo. The Kantcentrum (Lace Center) features lace-making demonstrations, while the Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan brewery offers guided tours. Exhibits at the Groeningemuseum trace centuries of Flemish and Belgian painting.

The conference is hosted by the VIVES University of Applied Sciences.
