From June 4th to June 6th, 2024, LEARNTEC will feature 100 speakers and 70 lectures/workshops on digital education trends, emphasizing AI and XR. Key topics include data literacy, trust culture, ESG, and performance management. The congress, aimed at education professionals, companies, and scientists, offers networking and insights from top international experts, with high-profile keynotes and practical sessions.



The LEARNTEC specialist congress will once again showcase the latest trends in digital education from June 4th to 6th, 2024. Around 100 speakers from business and science will pass on their specialist knowledge to participants in around 70 practical lecture and workshop slots. Artificial intelligence will again be the dominant topic at the congress in 2024, along with virtual and augmented realities (XR). Other key topics include data literacy, culture of trust, ESG and performance management.

The LEARNTEC Congress is aimed at professionals from the education industry, companies, scientists and interested parties who want to help shape digital education and offers them the opportunity to exchange ideas with like-minded people, make new contacts and learn from top-class international experts.

“From the submissions to the call for papers, we have once again put together a high-quality specialist conference on the most current topics in digital education. We are particularly pleased that we are increasingly receiving submissions from European countries and can share their important findings and best practices,” say Sünne Eichler and Prof. Dr. Peter A. Henning from the LEARNTEC congress committee. “We warmly invite all congress participants to expand their knowledge, gather new ideas and be inspired.”

LEARNTEC Congress: Exclusive keynotes provide future-oriented impulses

Once again this year, the heart of the LEARNTEC Congress will be the high-profile keynotes with speakers from science and business. LEARNTEC will kick off with a public keynote by Prof. Dr. Ulrike Lucke from the University of Potsdam. She will present the national education platform.

The federal government expects this central institution to give a significant boost to the digitization of education ; it will act as a “hub” to integrate nationwide education platforms and offerings, establish common standards and facilitate access to education.

On the afternoon of the first day of the congress, Lori Niles-Hofmann, Senior Learning Transformation Strategist from Canada, will address the participants. “I will be talking about the future of learning, including ways in which artificial intelligence can be used to enhance digital learning. This will be much more than using ChatGPT to write courses. Instead, we will look at how AI can be connected to organizations’ EdTech ecosystem to fully understand how people learn and where learning impacts business. Finally, I will speak on skills-based organizations and the role that learning and development and AI will play in this new paradigm,” she said ahead of LEARNTEC.

The second day of the LEARNTEC Congress begins with a keynote speech on learning support by Prof. Dr. Anja Schmitz and Jan Foelsing : “In times when technological developments are accelerating and learning has become a critical competitive factor, the question of how we can best support employees in this context of human-machine collaboration so that they can develop their potential and contribute to the success of the organization is becoming increasingly urgent. Learning support plays a central role in this. We will examine how learning support can be designed to promote self-directed and effective learning using human and digital intelligent learning companions in the interaction of artificial and human intelligence.”

This year, the popular panel discussion on Wednesday afternoon will focus on the individual wishes and visions of what the younger generation wants the digital education of the future to look like. Among those taking part in the discussion will be Jon Buchmüller, a student at the University of Hohenheim, and young professional Tamara Frankenhäuser from the LEARNTEC team, as well as trainees from trade and industry.

Creativity meets the future at Learntec: next generation e-learning approaches

With a holistic approach, the team around Charlotte Axelsson, head of the teaching development unit at the Zurich University of the Arts, is designing “digital learning spaces that can be experienced sensually and tenderly.” Using the examples of a continuing education course and other continuing education formats from the Encounter series, Charlotte Axelsson will explain the associated pedagogical concepts, methods and strategies on Thursday morning. “Digital skills are essential for shaping future education in a world with artificial intelligence.”

Prof. Dr. Eric Eller , Professor of Business and Media Psychology at the Technical University of Ingolstadt, devotes his keynote speech to the culture of trust. He argues that trust is “a confident decision for vulnerability and thus also a key prerequisite for learning”: “Whether people within an organization can trust each other is not a coincidence. Rather, the prerequisites for the development of trust are known and can be systematically established. Together we will delve into the psychology of trust and clarify how a culture of trust can develop in organizations.”

I am a licensed California Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the number one rated acupuncture school in California (and number two in the nation), Emperor’s College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Santa Monica). In my field of study, the focus was on acupuncture, biomedicine, oriental medicine, western nutrition and Chinese herbal medicine. After four demanding years (3,210 instructional hours, of which 2,240 are didactic hours and 970 are clinical hours), I then pursued the Emperor’s School Doctoral Program (1,250 hours, of which 600 are didactic hours and 650 are clinical rotation hours), a two-year program during which I earned my Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) degree. The DAOM program’s core emphasis was on reproductive medicine, cardiology, oncology, sports medicine, and stroke rehabilitation. My capstone/thesis consisted of a two-year research program on the effectiveness of acupuncture for menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. I also earned my Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (Dipl.OM) from the National Certification Commission of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). While studying, I completed a clinical internship at the Venice Family Clinic, treating various types of pains and illnesses. My mentorship program with Dr. Robert Chu, PhD, L.Ac., QME allowed me to learn first-hand the “Master Tung acupuncture style.” I also had the privilege to study in the gynecology, orthopedics, and pediatrics department of the China Medical University Hospital in Taichung, Taiwan. Moreover, I completed a two-year, internationally recognized GOLD STANDARD FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE® Certification Program which represents the most comprehensive and advanced training program of its kind available in the world today created by international exponent of facial acupuncture education, Mary Elizabeth Wakefield, L. Ac., M. S., M. M., of Chi-Akra Center for Ageless Aging in New York City. This program directly addresses and combats the aging effects on the face and body through psychosomatic means, the face being a reflection of the overall health of your body, mind, and spirit. Before attending Chinese medical school, I also was (and still am) a licensed esthetician. I wanted to help people internally as well as externally. Today, I am in a unique position to do just that, by incorporating both my knowledge of Chinese medicine and skin care into symbiotic treatments. I am a lifelong student who is fascinated by various healing modalities that include both Western and Eastern medicine, allopathic (when necessary) and functional medicine, along with various alternative health care modalities. I am always striving to further my education so as to better help my patients and better myself.
