Victoria at the Club with Assistant Vice-Chancellor of Digital Futures Professor Steven Warburton
Digital technologies, such as AI (artificial intelligence) and data analytics, are impacting on the way we live and work. We are experiencing increasing concerns around privacy, the nature of truth, and disquiet at the transformations foreshadowed by a fourth industrial revolution. These digital technologies are also challenging our traditional models of learning and teaching. In such disruptive times, are there are still fundamental principles that underpin the design of meaningful and valued educational experiences?
Mr Warburton is the Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Digital Futures) at Victoria University of Wellington, and the Director of the Centre for Academic Development.
He is also the Director of the university edX partnership that is delivering a programme of successful massive open online courses (MOOCs). He recently moved from the UK to New Zealand having spent the majority of his academic career working at Universities in London, UK. He has a research background in neuroscience, educational technology, games-based learning, and design patterns. He strongly believes in open learning and the power of digital technologies to provide access to education for all.
