This will provide an opportunity for networking in the industry and benchmarking of  emerging and evidence based best practices in 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.
