Santa Cruz, California, USA
University of California, Santa Cruz
2-3 November 2015

Dear Delegate,

Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters or colloquia are invited for the Eighth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies being held at the University of California, Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz, USA from 2-3 November 2015. We welcome proposals from a variety of disciplines and perspectives that will contribute to the conference discourse. We also encourage faculty and research students to submit joint proposals for paper presentations or colloquia.


“The Future of Education: Advanced Computing, Ubiquitous Learning, and the Knowledge Economy”

The digital revolution represents a sea change in the nature of learning and education. Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are transforming academic research and scholarship-introducing an entirely new platform for knowledge and learning. Alongside cloud computing and virtualization, artificial intelligence and high performance computing are now poised to fundamentally reshape the nature and scope of education. Despite this new high-tech environment, there remains significant concern about the capacity of contemporary education systems to adapt to technological innovation. The University of California at Santa Cruz, Common Ground Publishing, and the e-Learning Conference present “The Future of Education” as the special focus for the Eighth International Conference on e-Learning and Innovative Pedagogies. At this conference, participants will discuss the global knowledge economy and changing labor markets, and focus on the need to fundamentally rethink the way technologies can support new pedagogies, new learning environments, and new institutional configurations.
