[Nairobi 15th January 2024] Daystar University and Amref International University will jointly host the Higher Education e-learning Technologies International Conference 2024 (HiETeC-2024), from 21st - 23rd February 2024.

The theme of the conference is "Adoption of Disruptive Education Technologies and Pedagogical Skills in a Transformative Higher Ecosystem."

Higher Education in developing countries is undergoing rapid transformation necessitated by generational shift in learning behaviors, emerging virtual learning technologies and challenges posed by unpredictable pandemics among other factors.

Higher education is no longer confined to spaces between stone walls; knowledge resources are now ubiquitous and versatile. Thus, there is growing concern over the responsiveness and adaptability of our higher education ecosystems to the opportunities being offered by disruptive eLearning technologies. 

Co-organized by ODeL directorates of the two universities, the hybrid HiETeC-2024 conference will facilitate the presentation of cutting-edge research and case study discussions on the dynamic use of disruptive eLearning technologies by higher education stakeholders and experts. There will also be opportunities for networking with the industry players and benchmarking of emerging and evidence-based best practices in the delivery of quality virtual training in higher education.

The conference sub-themes are:

  • The role of emerging disruptive education technologies in optimizing learning outcomes.
  • Stimulation of social learning through digital innovations in higher education.
  • The catalytic effect of disruptive education technologies and pedagogies in the attainment of SDGs.
  • Application of online pedagogy to impact on learners’ behavior in distance education.
