Theme: The Connected College - Leading and Innovating towards Student Employability in a Digital Age
Dates: 31 July - 2 August 2017
What does it really mean to be a “Connected College” in the digital age?
Are you relevant to your students in the 21st century? The 2017 International North South TVET ICT Conference will explore the ways in which our college lecturers can use their surrounding landscapes as an ubiquitous learning environment - including the landscape of technology and social media--to re-envision what happens inside and outside our educational institutions and classrooms, with the ultimate view of empowering our students with the technological skills which are required for the world of work. Colleges need to create a connected learning community comprised of different learning environments including local (professional learning community), contextual (personal learning network), and global (community of practice).
The Future Managers International North South TVET ICT conference is the annual event where delegates from the TVET sector, universities, local and international, meet to share best practices, engage and learn how to deal with the challenges of the connected student in the classroom of the 21st century.
As a cumulative, the Connected College learning community in total allows like-minded individuals to contribute, interact, share ideas, and reflect. With the power of technology behind you, along with a community of other connected educators, you’ll improve your own.
An exhibition and demonstration area accompanies the programme, where leading ICT and e-learning manufacturers, suppliers and service providers present their latest products and services. Sponsored workshops and best practice showcases will be presented daily during the parallel sessions.
