The Future of Learning Conference will invite major actors who’ll be guiding future children or models, entrepreneurs, technologists etc.

The issues that shall be discussed at the conference will be how should the learning model 4.0 be in line with the principles of industry 4.0; how to bring in the vast majorities of underserved/unserved learners into the emerging learning networks; the barriers to transformation that exist and how to overcome them; the business or financial models that are likely to be successful, and the ecosystem elements that need to evolve and policy interventions needed.

The conference will conduct lectures or discussions by Professor P D Jose, FoL Conference Co-Chair and Chair of IIMB Digital Learning, Professor Sridhar Iyer, Conference Co-Chair, and faculty, IIT Bombay, Professor Deepak B Phatak, Conference Co-Chair, and faculty, IIT Bombay, Professor G Raghuram, Director, IIM Bangalore, Professor Das Narayandas, Senior Associate Dean, External Relations and HBSP, Harvard Business School, Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, Chairman and Executive Director, Narayana Health, Anant Agarwal, Founder and CEO of edX, R Subrahmanyam, Secretary, Department of Higher Education, MHRD, GoI, etc.

Despite the focus being on the digital transformation of the economy, the rural-urban divide still exists. 50% of the population is unserved with the digital transformation or educational services. The situation is similar in the South-Asia region, with 65% of the population with limited or no access to the Internet.

The Conference will be discussing these issues and try to find solutions to them as of how to make a high-quality education affordable for everybody.
