Event Description

The conference is hosted by the Institute for Educational Cybernetics, University of Bolton, UK, whose goal is to develop better understandings of how information and communication technologies affect the organization of education at all levels.

This conference is designed around the exploration of understanding and acting as circularly conjoined. Acting and understanding will be given equal weight, with each framing the other. The processes of learning are a major means of moving between the two, and take place in an environment, often framed as formal or informal education. Discussion of these processes and context provide a means of relating practical proposals for interventions and theoretical debate.

The conference will be conducted in a conversational style. We will work together (collaborate) in small groups and through plenary sessions, to improve understanding and acting, explored together. This conference is not about paper presentations but about conversations. Participants should share an interest to listen and to converse. The premise is not to listen to known answers, but to become involved in developing new questions.

Founded in 1964 and by now completely international, the ASC has long been particularly associated with so-called Second Order Cybernetics. Our conferences are experimental and attempt to capture the spirit and understandings of cybernetics in how we behave. Our members come from many backgrounds, and we have a strong commitment to relating to both arts and sciences.
