Event Details

EFMD Global brings to you the next edition of the EFMD Online Learning Symposium organised by EOCCS team, taking place on 9 and 10 September 2024 face-to-face at the University of Liverpool Management School, with the possibility of attending online.

The event offers insights into the alternative models of education that have emerged in the digital age. It gathers business schools, companies and other education providers from both EOCCS-certified institutions and other interested organisations and individuals to exchange good practices and explore ways of upgrading the quality of online learning. This year’s edition, with the multilayered title “Transforming lives online” seeks to explore the influence of online management education on daily work, studies and, indeed, the lives of all those involved in this process.

The two-day exciting programme will include many opportunities to discuss the issue of transformation in the field of online learning from different perspectives. On the first day, participants will be able to participate in an optional half-day Gamification of Learning Workshop, which will provide a unique hands-on experience of how to apply engaging strategies found in games in teaching to help students to connect with their learning and improve concentration, determination to succeed, and overall knowledge retention.

Be part of it!
