About Ben's keynote presentation


Entitled 'University 4.0? The future of data, automation and artificial intelligence in HE', Ben's keynote presentation will address the many upcoming challenges and opportunities of data and evidence in higher education.

Specifically, he will ask:

  1. What can the HE sector learn from data-led regulation in England and elsewhere, and what do market-based models mean for HE as it embraces the promises of data?
  2. How can the HE sector prepare for a future characterised as the 'Fourth Industrial Revolution', and what are the implications of a 'University 4.0' model for teaching and learning, and for HE policy and management?

We will add full details of Ben's keynote paper to our plenary programme in due course.
