MIT LINC 2019 Conference

Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 9:00am to 5:00pm


The MIT LINC 2019 Conference provides a framework for a meaningful discussion about education access, adoption, and application, allowing speakers and presenters to share their views and findings on the key technological, social, and cultural challenges we face in the new learning society, especially in developing nations and emerging markets. 

Since 2002, LINC conference participants have been sharing research in education, including technology-enabled educational innovations. We invite scholars, practitioners, students, corporate executives, government officials, foundation professionals, EdTech companies, and startups to gather and share research on and insight into learning engineering at LINC 2019.


Key Dates


Conference Theme

Over the past decade, a new generation has emerged of mobile, diverse learners, all with disparate levels of educational preparation, motivation, and interest. These learners include traditional students, disrupted learners such as the 68.5 million people forcibly displaced worldwide, and the 262 million children and youth across the globe who do not go to school. This generation also includes workers who need to adapt to recent and forthcoming changes in the labor market.

These learners are part of what we view as the “new learning society,” a generation whose lives are being reshaped by social, economic and political shifts, and whose educational opportunities are being redesigned and reconfigured by developments in wide-ranging fields, including artificial intelligence, digital learning, and brain and cognitive science. 

The conference will focus on learning and learners internationally at three levels: pK-12, Higher Education, and the Workplace.
