Theme 2015: Accelerating the Shift

Modernity is an era of momentous and accelerating change. How can people, businesses and organisations survive? How can they go beyond mere survival to succeed and prosper?

What roles should education and training play in helping us to manage the shift to a new society, a new marketplace or a new reality? What is possible? What are the most important tools for achieving change?

How can we extend the boundaries of possibility? How can we reach beyond the mundane into a new age of innovation, imagination and creativity? How can we open up our horizons? How can we combine technology and learning more effectively to bring about lasting change?

How can we accelerate the shift to a new age of global learning and creativity in which everything is possible?

OEB 2015 will look at the challenge of modernity for education and training, and at how people, organisations, institutions and societies can use technology-enhanced education and training to accelerate the shift to a new age of opportunity.

Whether your interest is in formal or informal, workplace or classroom, in the cloud or on the ground, massive, personalised, social, open, corporate, pedagogy or analytics, OEB will provide ample opportunities to learn, share and collaborate.
