Sub-conference C4:
Technology in Higher Education, Adult Learning, and Human Performance

Globalization and the dynamics of economic changes have forced institutions and organizations to search for new ways to strengthen their competitive advantages. To achieve this, improving learning and human performance for sustainable development has been recognized as a core approach. Learners including students in educational institutions and employees or knowledge workers in various organizations should be supported with opportunities and capabilities for self-directed and life-long learning. In recent years, technology-enhanced learning and training have been increasingly applied to universities, corporations, governments and communities to extend existing learning environments and approaches, as reported by academic institutions and research organizations such as IDC, Brand-Hall, McGraw-hill, and MIC.

While implementing technology-enhanced learning, a variety of issues should be taken into account such as learning and instructional theories, educational technology, curriculum development, knowledge management, performance evaluation, human resource development, management strategies, and organizational culture. Intensive collaborations among scholars and practitioners are required for enhancing the research and practice in technology-enhanced higher education, adult learning, and human performance. This sub-conference aims to simulate more investigations and discussions on this theme. It provides a forum for academics and practitioners to explore issues related to the design, implementation, and evaluation of technologies for higher education, adult learning, and human performance as well as their educational or organizational impacts and economic issues.

  1. E-learning in higher education
  2. E-learning for continuing education
  3. Distance education and lifelong learning
  4. Computer-supported self-directed learning
  5. Instructional design in e-learning
