Eurovision 2020: Technology Enhanced Learning for a New Horizon

The 15th Educational Technology Conference of the Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) takes place on May 29th-30th, 2014 at University College Dublin.

Irish higher education is undergoing fundamental structural reform at a national level, while engaging in an increasingly globalised market place.  As we move towards 2020, issues concerning student participation, retention and resourcing sit alongside policy and practice tensions. However, the core issue of quality in higher education remains of paramount importance for all educational stakeholders. The EdTech2014 conference theme aligns with the forthcoming EU strategic report ‘New Methods of Delivering Quality in Higher Education’.

The report will provide recommendations to Member States with respect to the effective use of technology-enhanced learning tools, methods and practices to support the quality agenda and;    Address associated infrastructure, funding, policy, IPR, staff development and accreditation issues to support the adoption of these practices.The report will be published in June 2014 by the EU High Level Group for the Modernisation of Higher Education which is chaired by former President Mary McAleese.
