Education and Global Cities: New Technologies for Development
The Fifth Annual International Conference Education and Global Cities: New Technologies for Development is devoted to the discussion of several important concepts taken together, namely education, new technologies, cities, and development. The discussion will be focused on, but by no means limited by Global South as both a driver and the main area of the world development.
The conference will bring together experts in education and development, university leaders and heads of the university networks and associations as well as international educators interested in discussing ties between education, development and new technologies. As such the conference is aimed at the rethinking the role of the education and the concept of the development as such.
The discussion is to be held in a number of panel sessions, the topics of which are ranging from new (digital) educational technologies to the concept of the development, and from smart cities to the international education and South-South collaboration.
The conference will focus, among other important things, on the changing role of the university in the development of our increasingly interconnected, globalized and essentially digitalized world. As such it both continues the dialogue the previous events began and widens the discussion through linking its focus to the new understanding of the development.
