Humane-MOOCs coverYou are kindly invited to the HUMANE/EFMD Advisory Seminar 'MOOCs, Millennials and the Road Ahead for Higher Education' which will take place on 19 September 2014 at the EFMD offices in Brussels, Belgium.

The last 20 years have seen the biggest transformation we have ever witnessed in the way we communicate and deliver knowledge. ICT impacts every aspect of our lives and social media play a major role in the way we interact with one another. The potential for higher education to transform the entire process of knowledge delivery is enormous.    

From traditional face-to-face teaching to student centred e-learning or blended approaches there are many ways in which universities and business schools can deliver new knowledge and skills, either on their own or in strategic partnerships with educational providers around the globe.   

Andrew Crisp, director of CarringtonCrisp, the higher education marketing specialists, will moderate the seminar and speakers include:

  • Jessica di Bella, Head of Mannheim Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, University of Mannheim
  • Frederik Truyen, Coordinator ICT for Humanities and Social Sciences and Head of the Computer Department of the Faculty of Arts at Leuven University
  • Jean-Claude Hunsinger, Head of the ICT Department of the Université Panthéon-Assas (Paris II)

Do MOOCs offer revolutionary approaches to teaching and learning or are they just the hot topic of the moment?  What are they all about and what implications do they have for HEIs, business schools and their decision-makers?

The seminar will offer an overview on all there is to know about MOOCs as well as insight into a recent study "See the Future" to understand some of the key issues facing higher education. It will look at lessons learnt from a number of concrete cases in the broader context of innovative teaching and learning in higher education. Finally there will be a session on how education and learning styles can be adapted for millennials.

The day will adopt a highly practical approach allowing ample time for participants to interact with the moderators and speakers and reflect on the challenges and implications linked to the changing higher education landscape.  We hope you will be able to join us for this very interesting seminar and urge you to register as soon as possible as places are limited. In addition, feel free to forward this email to your colleagues who might be interested in attending the seminar.
