EdTech Malmö

New paths to lifelong learning – flexible, online and accessible

Technical & pedagogical opportunities, challenges, and disruptions.

New paths to lifelong learning – flexible, online and accessible, by Alastair Creelman
Lifelong learning places new demands on our formal education system. In addition new course providers and credentials are competing for a growing target group of adult learners who want professional development or a career change but are unable to fit into the model of the traditional campus university. 

About Edtech Malmö
The topics about EdTech are endless, and will always center around learning. Anything that may inspire, enhance or just plain work to create great pedagogy in a digitized world. AR, VR, AI, LMS, e-learning, andragogics, mobile learning, constructive alignment, distance learning, lifelong learning - you name it, we will discuss it.

EdTech Malmö is led by Fredrik Rutz, a university teacher, researcher, consultant and entrepreneur who is very interested in lifelong learning and how to accomplish it. Everybody learns, all the time, but how can we help them, both within informal and formal learning, both within practical and theoretical subjects? Or put another way, teaching theory via Zoom is relatively easy (or is it?), but can we have choir practice with participants all over the world, or teach an Australian technician how to mend a Jumbo jet when the teacher is in Malmö (and the plane is in Frankfurt)?
