The International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE) is the leading global membership organization for open, distance, flexible and online education, including e-learning, and draws its membership from institutions, educational authorities, commercial actors and individuals. For its ICDE Leadership Summit, ICDE invites many types of leaders in education, particularly those who have an interest in learning and teaching in the digital age and learning analytics (LA).
ICDE Leadership Summit 2017
This year’s ICDE Leadership Summit is hosted by LORIA at Université de Lorraine, 22-23 May 2017 in Nancy, France. It is organised back to back with a one day Forum “Visionary Leadership for Digital Transformation”, taking place the day after the Summit at the UNESCO Head Quarters in Paris, organised by ICDE, UNESCO and the project D-Transform. The two combined events offer a rare opportunity to explore in depth the strategic main issues for higher education leaders who are setting the course for quality teaching and learning in a time of digitalisation.
