Technology, P​​edagogy and Society: ​
Critical Appreciation of the Present and Prospects​ for ​the ​Future

Thu, Nov 30-Fri, Dec 1, 2023 | ​​In-person and Online

The Aga Khan Un​​​​iversity Institute for Educational Development (AKU-IED) invites you to​ its 12th International Conference which ​​aims to engage in a critical appreciation of the role of technology in conjunction with Pakistan’s core educational policy concern of ‘Quality and Access’, and discuss prospects for the future of education. This event commemorates AKU-IED's 30 years of contribution and excellence in the field of education, within Pakistan and beyond. ​​​

The​ conference seeks to address the following questions:

  • ​​​How do we look at the old educational problems of access, quali​ty and relevance in the light of the newer technological solutions?
  • What is the evidence, if any, of technology supported instruction​​ being more effective in terms of academic and social outcomes for the learners?
  • What ethical concerns (e.g. privacy, inequities, surveillance, commercialisation) are raised by newer technologies, particularly the AI? How do we respond to these challenges?
  • How can we improve our readiness for the economy and the future of work by rethinking education, technology, and workforce development?
  • What are the implications for teacher education, assessment, and educational leadership of the new technological advancements?
  • What new responsibilities and expectations are created for the State and Tech Companies in ensuring equitable and progressive use of technologies in society?
