Across the world, the pandemic has accelerated the adoption of Education Technologies (EdTech) including in Australia and ASEAN member states. Stakeholders are embracing the opportunities and transformations made possible by digital innovation including preparing learners for the future.
EdTech is also assisting with the upskilling and reskilling challenges in the education and training sector. The society in general is grappling with how it confronts the impact of the 4th Industrial revolution and the rapidly changing world of work.

A broader understanding of the different business models and opportunities presented by digital technologies through an examination of how EdTech is being used to support management education as well as skills development in different sectors of the economy
Opportunities to foster new connections, alliances and networks across the higher education, TVET, government and EdTech sectors
