Marriott Hotell, Kendall Square, 2nd floor 50 Broadway, Cambridge, MA

Speaking on:  "From Distance Universities to Universities Without Distances"

The Open University of Catalonia (UOC), an educational institution that delivers all of its content online, is present at every site where there are students. President Josep Planell's talk will focus on the capacity technology has to change the teaching methodology to transform the student into a “real learner" at the center of the learning process. A second focus is the opportunity for universities to become global -- reaching a large numbers of students globally and to define what it means to be global.
