IIM Bengaluru Hosts the Third Edition of Annual Future of Learning Conference 2020
IIM Bengaluru hosted the third edition of the Annual Future of Learning Conference 2020 (FoL 2020) from January 3 to 4, 2020. The theme was ‘Learning to Learn, Unlearn and Relearn: Flourishing in the Age of Disruptions and Innovation’. The event saw speakers from tech companies and premier education institutions like Infosys, Capgemini, TCS, NASSCOM, edX, Fidelity Investments, Mercer Mettl, IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, and more.
Narayana Murthy, Chairman Emeritus & Co-founder, Infosys, comments, “Education is learning to learn. Learning broadens one’s horizon, improves judgments, instills critical learning, enhances curiosity, and helps them walk the path, reach the unattained goals, and solve the future problems of the society”.
Massive technology-led disruptions in the educational sector have obliged both institutions and individuals to act adaptively. This paved the way for the emergence of new pedagogies using adaptive learning, personalized learning as well as a host of pedagogical approaches. Along with this, the participants got the opportunity to present the research on various platforms in the education industry, at the conference.
“The future of education is digital. About 75 percent of the workforce would comprise millennials by the next decade. Tomorrow’s learning will be digital, which will be connected, on-demand and modular, mobile, flexible, and personalized”, states Anant Agarwal, Founder & CEO, edX.
