The future of learning
An Emerald mission in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals
The world we live in is changing at a fast pace and what we teach and how we teach is also evolving rapidly. What do our tech futures look like and how can we embrace developments to ensure positive teaching and learning experiences with improved outcomes? How can our education systems be reshaped to foster learner-first approaches and also keep up to date with growing demands of the 21st century?
Together with some of our partners and authors, we've been exploring this subject.
We’re searching for more authors to publish with us in the field of education, we’d love to hear from you.
