The OEB Plenary Debate
Is data corrupting education? Is higher education fit for purpose? Should testing and qualifications be banned? Each year, OEB poses a provocative motion to four expert speakers and the OEB audience to thrash out in a highly spirited parliamentary-style debate. No received wisdom goes unchallenged or cliché unopposed. A legendary conference highlight that can’t be missed. Join us for the OEB Plenary Debate 2015 on the motion ’This House believes 21st Century skills aren’t being taught - and they should be’.
The Friday plenaries bring together expert speakers from around the world to share their perspectives on a pertinent issue facing technology supported learning and training, through insightful keynote speeches and lively panel discussions.
