The widespread move to online learning during the last few years due to the global pandemic has opened up new opportunities and challenges for the Learning at Scale (L@S) community. These opportunities and challenges relate not only to the educational technologies used but also to the social, organizational and contextual aspects of supporting learners and educators in these dynamic and, nowadays, often multicultural learning environments. How the future of learning at scale will look needs careful consideration from several points of view, including a focus on technological, social, organizational, cultural, and responsible aspects of learning and teaching.
The theme of this year’s conference is the learning futures that the L@S community aims to develop and support in the coming decades. Of special interest this year are contributions that examine the design and the deployment of large-scale systems for the future of learning at scale.
