Description

The UCL Institute for Global Prosperity and the RELIEF Centre partners are pleased to invite you to Innovation on the Move – an event on the role of innovation and entrepreneurship in building a prosperous future for societies impacted by mass displacement.

The RELIEF Centre is a transdisciplinary research collaboration that focuses on one of the world’s pressing challenges of the moment: how to build a prosperous and inclusive future for communities affected by mass displacement.

One of the research strands, Future Education, focuses on co-designing the appropriate education and learning opportunities for communities impacted by mass displacement.

This event is a chance to explore the role entrepreneurship can play in achieving this. Hosted by Diana Laurillard - Professor of Learning with Digital Technologies at the UCL Institute for Education and Co-Investigator with the RELIEF Centre - EdTech companies from Lebanon and the UK will discuss if and how EdTech can meet future education needs in the context of mass displacement.

We will then have a collective discussion exploring the major challenges for education and technology in the context of mass displacement, and how we can respond to these challenges.


This is the first part of a two part event. Part two takes place from 18:00 onwards.


15:00-15:30 - arrival and introduction from the Institute for Global Prosperity and Diana Laurillard on the ways that mass displacement is a challenge to education and the role technology could play

15:30-16:00 - Presentations from two EdTech entrepreneurs on how they are companies approaching the question of if, and how education and technology could contribute to addressing the challenges faced by education in the context of mass displacement.

16:00-16:45 - Collective discussions on both the challenges, and necessary response to mass displacement for EdTech companies
