From 15 to 18 July 2019, the Viriato Campus of the University of Salamanca in Zamora had the opportunity to host the 14th International Conference on Knowledge Management in Organizations (KMO) and the 8th International Workshop on Learning Technology for Educational Challenges (LTEC).
These congresses are organized by our Research Group, BISITE. Both events attracted researchers and professionals, who discussed emerging technologies and paradigm shifts as well as the role they play in different fields.
The conferences were directed by specialists in areas related to the theme of the congress, among them:
Professor Wim Vanhaverbeke from Hasselt University (Belgium), who gave a lecture on "Digital technologies and the governance of innovation ecosystems".
Kevin Burden, professor at the University of Hull, who participated in the conferences with a paper entitled: "Exploring and imagining the future of educational technology.
Professor Patricia Wolf of the University of Southern Denmark in Odense, who developed the main ideas on "Open Knowledge Sharing Communities: Towards a commons-based society?"
Researcher Demetrios Sampson, co-author of more than 345 articles, published in scientific books, journals and conferences, presented his theory on "Analysis of educational data for online teaching and learning".
Undoubtedly, it has been a great opportunity that has brought together stakeholders, professionals and experts in knowledge management and in the application of learning technologies for educational purposes.
