Symposium: Future Learning?!
On the occasion of the official opening of the Future Learning Lab at the University College of Teacher Education Vienna (PH Wien) and the Media Literacy Week in Austria the Center for Educational Technology and Innovation (ZLI) organizes an international Symposium on the Future of Learning that will take place on October 16-17, 2017. In addition to lectures by national and international experts, participants will attend workshops in the Future Learning Lab and other learning spaces of the PH Wien, and have the opportunity to state their opinions and experiences in an Open Fishbowl.

Digitization and medialization require new competences and raise crucial issues for schools and universities: How will learning develop in the future? What are the requirements for the classroom and the school architecture? How can the changing roles of students and teachers be defined? What are didactic possibilities and limitations of the use of digital media in teaching and learning processes?
The symposium focuses on questions about the future of learning from different perspectives. By doing so, it follows the requirement of openness to the diversity of perspectives and the possibility of creating discursive bridge. In addition to the positions of the lecturers, this also includes those of the participants from school, scientific and economic contexts.
