Track Education

Education and training is the core business for academics. Industry wants state-of-the-art ICT professionals. This track will facilitate a dialogue on computer science education between Dutch universities, universities of applied sciences, and industry deploying ICT. The track will embrace a broad view of the current and future trends in computing education, including innovation of higher education and innovations for the purpose of lifelong learning.

Structure

The programme is divided into three parts. In part 1, an overall setting of the topic is presented. Part 2 is reserved for a discussion on the topic education in ICT for the purpose of life long learning. In part 3, innovations with ICT for higher education will be discussed. In both latter parts, several invited speakers present their vision on the topics, followed by a panel discussion with the speakers.
