After a two-year hiatus, the Lillehammer Lifelong Learning Conference is returning. The last event was held in 2019 and a lot has changed since then. After a long period of imposed home study, new gaps are emerging in education. There is a need to reinvent physical and online meeting places for formal and informal learning, and edtech solutions such as itslearning can help improve the learning experience.

The International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) is hosting the third International Lillehammer Lifelong Learning ICDE Conference 15-17 February 2023.

In a post-pandemic time, learning spaces need to be rethought and re-invented. After a long period of imposed work from home, new gaps are evolving between employees with on-site work and those with hybrid or remote work. This poses new challenges when working towards UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular, No. 4: “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all and promote lifelong learning” says the organization.

This year’s event is based on a roadmap that was created at the last event in 2019, when around 400 participants from over 30 countries met in Lillehammer for three days. The conference was divided into plenary and parallel sessions with world-renowned panellists and speakers, and was chaired by ICDE president Neil Fassina.

itslearning will be joining this Global event for the first time this year. The conference will cover a broad aspect of topics related to lifelong learning key issues, trends, and best practices on three levels:

  • Authorities and transnational organisations (policy making)
  • Education sector and public/private enterprises (development and support)
  • Recognizes singular and plurals, but also tenses of verbs
  • Educators and learners (implementation; teaching and learning)

Since lifelong learning is an important topic for us, and was discussed by a panel of Nordic experts in our latest webinar, we will be paying close attention.
