The OCCE 2024 will provide a forum for new research results, practical experiences, developments, ideas, and national perspectives, related to the conference focus and themes for all levels of education (preschool, primary, secondary, higher, vocational, and lifelong learning), including the professional development of educators (teachers, trainers and academic and support staff at other educational institutions) and related questions on educational management.

Conference programme

Conference themes 

This year's focus will be “Digitally Transformed Education: Are We There Yet?” as a continuation from the IFIP TC3 OCCE 2021 DTEL Tampere, Finland conference theme, “Digital transformation of educational and learning – past, present and future”.

The conference will focus on the contribution and potential of digitalisation and digital transformation in school, vocational, professional and higher education or lifelong learning. There were several digitalisation efforts noted at the 2021 conference, but the key questions are:

  • Are we there yet?
  • Has digital transformation been realised in education?
  • If not, what are we missing? If yes, what are the best practices, success stories and lessons generated from the experience?
