ePIC Conference in London

Join us at ePIC 2013, this 8-10 July in London, to shape the future of learning.

In these times of uncertainty, nothing is more certain than the need for learning and innovation. It is why we have chosen as the umbrella theme for this year’s event: “Open Me” (open education, open source, open data, open learning, open badges, etc.).

ePIC 2013 will feature a special track on Open Badges, an emerging technology that has already started to change the landscape of learning and employment as well as health care. A series of hands-on workshops, presentations and keynotes will provide a unique opportunity to understand why and how to implement Open Badges in your organisation, network or territory.

More presentations and keynotes will address literacy, assessment, employability, identity construction, learning analytics, etc.: http://www.epforum.eu/programme

Among the keynote speakers and panel members are the following experts:

  • Kirstie Donnelly MBE, City & Guilds Group Director of Product Development
  • Philipp S. Mueller, Dean of the Business School (SMBS) of University of Salzburg, Austria, author of “machavelli.net”
  • Alan Davis, President and Vice-Chancellor, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Canada
