This is the final part of a 4-part series for SIG – Learning Technology for 2023. As educators embarking on the learning technology journey, we must step back and reflect on what we have done thus far. Following the discussion on what’s next in the post-pandemic era in session 1, the exploration of the use of technology for learning in session 2, and the sharing on the use of AR/VR/AI in session 3, this session aims to conclude 2023 for AEs to stay ahead. Additionally, this session will serve as a platform for participants to actively contribute to shaping the agenda of this SIG for the upcoming year 2024, ensuring that our collective vision aligns with the needs and aspirations of the adult learning community.


This is a fully online session conducted via ZOOM. Participants can participate in the session from any venue of their convenience with a laptop / device that is compatible with ZOOM. More details on participating in the session will be send to the confirmed registrants.
