Theme: The Future of Higher Education in the 21st Century: the big technology balancing act?
Globally, the focus of Teaching and Learning is constantly shifting from traditional teaching-centred paradigms to almost exclusive reliance on technology. The shift influenced by multifarious factors, is not without challenges or resistance. How do we balance this rapid shift with concerns on quality? How do we creatively, proactively and constructively leverage on rapidly changing teaching and learning environments to respond to new generations of students while ensuring that academic excellence and quality are not sacrificed and compromised? Join us at Colloquium 2018 as we deliberate and seek answers to these and many other questions.
