The Academic Program

Insights into the Future of Education

The accelerated development of new information and communication technologies today make up a new technosocial environment with clear implications in all aspects of life and particularly in the educational institutions and in the workplace. New methodological opportunities are emerging, new educational settings/scenes, new contexts for collaboration and new professional competencies which are necessary to address.
