Recognizing the importance of building the capacities of today’s youth to build a cadre of future leaders, on 3-5 June 2014, the United Nations Asian and Pacific Training Centre for ICT for Development (UN-APCICT) will hold the International Conference on Engaged Learning & ICTD in the University Curriculum in Selangor, Malaysia in collaboration with Cornell University (USA), the University of Selangor (Malaysia), and the Asian Institute for Development Communication.

  

Building on UN-APCICT’s Turning Today’s Youth into Tomorrow’s Leaders programme, the three-day conference aims to promote ICT for development (ICTD) education in university curricula. It also seeks to enhance participants’ understanding of “engaged learning” (also known as service learning) as a way to link classroom-based ICTD learning to community development. To support the application of engaged learning, Cornell University and APCICT will introduce and collect feedback on a draft guidebook for managing an engaged learning course in ICTD, and explore future strategies for using the guidebook to incorporate the approaches into university curriculum.

WHEN: 3-5 June 2014

WHERE: Selangor, Malaysia

WHO: Over 110 professors and educators from institutions of higher learning, government officials, as representatives from NGOs/CSOs, international organizations and the private sector.
