Conference Aim
The bloom of educational technology, especially the rapid development of generative AI, has had immense impacts on higher education. While we are still observing how AI and edtech affect educators and students in the long run, it is exciting to witness how technologies are shaping education and preparing future-ready graduates. In light of this, the CPCECPR Conference 2024 timely presents an opportunity for researchers and educators to engage in discussions about pedagogic research, graduate employability, and the potential of artificial intelligence and education technology. At the Conference, aside from talks delivered by keynote and plenary speakers, we will engage in dialogues with industry partners and peers, and provide an arena for CPCE students and research personnel to showcase their research achievements in the form of poster presentations.
Our conference this year aims to be a catalyst for innovation and a beacon in the new landscape of higher education. We look forward to sharing ideas and experiences of partners from both the academic and the professional worlds, and we welcome you to join us to enrich our dialogue and experience.
