The future of work & digital ethics | ULL Online Webinar 11/12, 16:00 (CET)

The future of work & digital ethics | ULL Online Webinar 11/12, 16:00 (CET)

The intentions of tech developers and tech companies are often good. But ethical problems arise when technology ends up allowing discrimination or exclusion. These are generally unintended consequences of technology with harmful effects on human life.

Therefore, a fundamental exercise that we can do when faced with the challenge of remedying them is to seek answers to important questions such as:

Improvement for whom? The government or the citizens? The company or the workers?

Because issues related to power often come into play and a suggestive way to analyse them is with a sociological perspective and ask:

what is the future of work? What kind of life will we have when algorithms and artificial intelligence take over the jobs? And who is the "we"? Who will benefit from this transformation and who will lose?

The speaker will explain the impact of technology on society from the ethical point of view. Ethical problems arise when technology ends up allowing discrimination or exclusion. The questions to answer will be: what is the future of work? What kind of life will we have when algorithms and artificial intelligence take over the jobs? And who is the "we"? Who will benefit from this transformation and who will lose? The digitalization brings improvement for whom? The government or the citizens? The company or the workers?

How to build Open Education capacity among university educators | UNIMC Online Webinar 2/12, 10:00

How to build Open Education capacity among university educators | UNIMC Online Webinar 2/12, 10:00

In the traditional narrative, Open Education approaches, including the use of OER, MOOCs and open teaching practices, aim to increase equity of education and at improving the quality of teaching, mostly by allowing the re-use of openly-licensed contents produced by others. This is certainly true, but research is starting to document the fact that Open Educational approaches bear also the potential to innovate teaching practices, by facilitating students engagement, responsibility and co-creation of knowledge. The webinar will present some interesting open teaching practices, connecting them to the competences that educators need to build in order to put those in practice, and providing some ideas on how these competences can be developed.
