Conference Co-Chairs, Professor Passey and Theresa Keane of Swinburne University of Technology in Australia, said the theme of Empowering Teaching for Digital Equity and Agency reflects the commitment to and current interests in research and practice in learning and technology that members of the IFIP Technical Committee 3 (TC3) and its Working Groups have fostered over many years, and continue to nurture today.

“We are delighted that the conference will be hosted and supported by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) and the India Didactics Association (IDA). With their focused interests in this field, their breadths of expertise and experience, and through their dedication to teacher support, we are indeed fortunate that they will be involved throughout the conference,” they said.

The conference will be of particular interest to teachers, researchers, PhD candidates, policy makers and ICT professionals interested in education, who can collaborate and discuss the impact of digital technologies on the whole educational environment.

It also seeks to contribute to the continual development of practices, policy and improvement of student learning outcomes.
