Mr. Tim Bergmeier
Director, InPlace (Asia)
title : ” Artificial Intelligence for Educators: Using technology to produce work ready Graduates “
Tim is an ardent follower of technology trends in the Higher Education sector, in particular focusing on ‘work based’ or ‘industry learning’ experiences. Fascinated by the rapid pace in which technology is progressing and transforming our interactions with the world, he addresses some of the challenges this poses.
Snap Chat, delivery drones, IoT car gadgets, App-enabled cooking utensils; the list is endless and would require a full time job to keep up with. As such, Tim advocates that the key is to focus our attention on technology that affects our personal and professional interests.
Tim has been working with technology in Higher Education since 2010 when QuantumIT established InPlace Software, a world leader in work based learning solutions. Tim’s focus is on technology within Higher Education. He believes that Digitizing the relationship between Higher Education and Industry should be the aspiration of all institutes. Digitizing work based learning practices such as gaming for work experience role play and mixed reality for simulating low probability, high consequence situations should also be considered.
Tim keynotes regularly and draws on his extensive global network to share learnings with audiences around the world.
