TNE 4.0: Technology and TNE

27 Feb 2020, 10:00 - 15:00
Jisc
Portwall Lane, Bristol 
Exact location TBC

​Technology can play a key enabling role in the delivery of high quality, equitable and accessible TNE, addressing issues such as assuring connectivity, licensing digital content and the digital skills of students and staff. There are also risks associated with digital dependency, cyber security, intellectual property, the unbundling of the education experience and the impact of TNE on the environment.

Join UUKi and Jisc for a day full of sessions on approaches to ensure your TNE operations are technologically suited to embrace Industry 4.0.

We will explore:

  • Enhancing TNE provision through technology: the virtual TNE environment
  • Case studies of successful (and less successful) application of technology to TNE
  • Technological pitfalls of delivering higher education across borders.
  • Mutualising risk and profit through technology: TNE licensing

Do you have an interesting case study to present? Please submit your session proposal here.
