Day 1 Morning Session
There is no more important issue facing education, or humanity at large, than the fast approaching revolution in Artificial Intelligence or AI. This book is a call to educators everywhere to open their eyes to what is coming. If we do so, then the future will be shaped by us in the interests of humanity as a whole - but if we don’t then it will be imposed by others. Britain and the US have an excellent education system in their schools and universities - excellent, but tailored to the twentieth century. Will the fourth AI revolution remedy the problems inherent in this system? We have allowed ourselves to believe that teaching can uniquely be done only by the teacher, but might it in fact be better carried out by AI machines? This session will lift us from the day-to-day to set the tone for Future Edtech 2019.
For years, we’ve heard the buzz around the promise of web personalisation: how it can lead to qualified applicants, increased conversions, an improved service experience, and more. But at the same time, most of us have been stalled: What technology do we use? How do we measure it? What’s the internal workflow? What will we specifically personalise? Domain7’s Higher Ed digital consultants are asking those questions too. Hear what we’re learning — the metrics, messaging, mockups and mechanics of personalisation — and what we’re seeing as the natural barriers facing teams in higher education wanting to adopt this technology.
We all know that some of the most impactful learning experiences we have had start with meaningful conversations. That’s why we are building time into the programme where you will get to build your personal networks and plan time to think about your part in creating institution-wide change, the theme of this years’ Future Edtech.
Grab a coffee, take a seat, or mingle in our interactive exhibition, and say hello to the person next to you.
Day 1 Morning Session 2
We are all very aware that we are experiencing the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This session will explore what Microsoft are seeing across the globe, how we are responding to this change, what are customers are expecting of us and themselves in this new world and what jobs may look like in the future.
We often talk about the university student, but who they are and what they want is extremely varied. This panel brings together five diverse voices to share what they want from the University experience, community and support. How have they variously experienced admissions, student support services, teaching and learning, assessment, and career services?

Vice-Chancellor & Senior Leadership Team Roundtable
The VC & SLT roundtable takes place on the 11th June, with lunch provided. The idea is to provide a space for VC's and their senior teams to discuss the changing nature of the University in a forum which recognises senior exec time pressures.
Join Mary Curnock Cook, and other guests from across the sector, to hear and respond to key findings from the quarterly Emerge Education advisory board meeting for Higher and Further Education, including recent work with Jisc and other partners to launch Step Up, a pre-procurement health check for Universities to de-risk working with edtech. Ovum will also be in attendance to offer a wide view on HigherEd transformation.
You are welcome to stay on for the duration of Future Edtech. Access to this session is based on job title. Limited places apply.

Day 1 Afternoon Session
For over forty years, Oracle has been at the forefront of IT innovation, working hand-in-hand with leading research and education organisations across the globe. This session will outline Oracle’s approach to inspiring future generations to engage in STEAM subjects, thereby opening up potential and exciting career paths in IT, research and development. We will outline some of the innovative projects that Oracle enables through the provision of cloud computing — applications, technology and expertise. These produce ground-breaking analytics which help advance humankind’s understanding of key environmental and business issues.
Through working with leading research and education organisations on such life-changing research projects, we will also touch on the necessity to provide innovative business applications that will provide a 21st century experience to students and staff alike. This helps to underpin the long-term viability of organisations in an increasingly competitive global market.
