Topic: "The Future of Education is not what it Used to Be"

Wednesday, April 19th, 2016, 6pm (s.t.) - 8pm

Leopoldstr. 13, Raum 1305

Abstract: Knowledge Advances of digital technologies in the last 50 years have not produced
a quantitative change, but a qualitative one. We see how these advances have radically
affected many industries (music, news, commerce, etc.). However, at universities so far we
don’t see groundbreaking changes. MOOCs (massive open online courses) and SPOCs (small
private online courses) have been a timid experiment at traditional universities to try out
what is possible with today’s standard technologies. In this talk, I will present some of the
experiments carried out at UC3M. However, once you have tasted what is possible, you
realize that university education cannot remain the same. I will reflect on what is possible in
the near future analysing weak signals that we see today.
