Launch Event: Reimagining Research-led Education in a Digital Age
The pressures of the pandemic have prompted a discourse of ‘need for change’. This includes questions of what should be taught, and why and how it should be taught so that graduates are educated for continuous change. Higher education is invited to innovate its pedagogical offering and collaborate in new ways. And yet, existing regulatory frameworks continue to be nationally accredited, delivered and regulated.
Research-intensive universities, with their plurality of disciplines, are unique places for pedagogical innovation. Given the increasing emphasis on transdisciplinarity in approaching global challenges, there is a need to rethink the relationship between research and teaching, and how active learning can reflect this changing relationship, especially in the digital age.
What will change look like for your institution? How can universities build on their strengths to embrace transformation in new ways? Join us on 4 June when we will launch our new Insight Paper “Reimagining Research-led Education in a Digital Age” to initiate broader discussions about what needs to change – and what needs to be preserved from the current system.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event!
