Welcome to the 4th Applied Learning Conference -
Advancing Applied Learning and Competency Development in the Digital Age.
The ever-evolving digital landscape continues to shape the way we live, work and learn. It also creates new opportunities for both academia and industry to leverage technology to deliver meaningful and engaging learning. In this conference, we will discuss latest trends and learn about innovative approaches for advancing applied learning through technology.
