Digifest 2020 in Birmingham next March

Birmingham (UK), 10-11 March 2020

Digifest 2020 recognises that digital citizenship and learners lie at the heart of Education 4.0.

Looking towards a future where education is an inclusive and ethical journey for everyone, Digifest 2020 explores lifelong learning and ways in which technology can transform learning for all.

Taking place annually over two days, Digifest celebrates the power and possibilities of digital technologies and how they’ll be shaping the ways we teach, learn, live and work in the 21st century.

‘Industry 4.0’ technologies are already all around us, changing the ways in which we live, work and learn. By 2022, the skills required to perform most jobs will have shifted and 54% of all employees will require re-skilling and upskilling. Digifest 2020 captures the excitement and challenge of managing that evolutionary change – a challenge that will see wholesale changes to the jobs market where 85% of jobs that will exist in 2030 have as yet to be invented!

Submissions for session ideas are open until January 31.

Digifest 2020 is free for Jisc member organisations.
