Digitisation affects not only industry, but also learning – this will constitute the primary focus of the EAPRIL 2020 conference. The venue is the University of Applied Sciences in Kufstein, Austria – in the heart of the beautiful Tyrolean Alps.
This year’s EAPRIL conference invites researchers, experts, and practitioners from all over the world to exchange ideas on the topic of Learning in the Age of Industry 4.0. The conference will take place from November 25th to 27th, 2020 at the university in Kufstein, a modern, vibrant, and traditional city in the Austrian Alps.
In the context of the EAPRIL conference, researchers are dealing with the changing goals of lifelong learning in an exchange with practitioners. The key question: what opportunities do digitisation and associated digital technologies offer in the teaching and learning environment. New learning models with virtual reality systems, artificial intelligence (AI), and the use of online channels are paving the way for a new methodology that requires the rethinking of didactic concepts.
