The Guild seminar series: Reimagining research-led higher education - how to build standards that help, not hinder?

As part of our series of reflections, workshops and discussions on The Guild’s latest Insight Paper “Reimagining Research-led Education in a Digital Age”, we are delighted to invite you to the second virtual seminar hosted by Aarhus University on 23 September.

For any future vision for Europe’s universities to succeed, we must move beyond red tape to develop enabling policy tools and flexible regulatory frameworks. New educational challenges require new types of standards that are suited to developments in research-led higher education and that allow for collaboration and flexibility. The second virtual seminar will consider the breadth of the remit facing universities in their ambition to engage students in research-led education. Also, it will discuss what kind of standards are needed that can enhance, rather than hinder, universities in fulfilling this ambition. Lastly, the seminar will explore possible ways to form ‘communities of practice’ that involve students and academics as well as leaders and policy makers in developing such standards.

Speakers:

  • Berit Eika, Prorektor for Education at Aarhus University
  • Professor Susan Wright, Professor of Educational Anthropology, Danish School of Education, Aarhus University and Co-director of Centre for Higher Education Futures (CHEF)
  • Associate Professor Søren Smedegaard Bengtsen, Associate Professor of General Education, Aarhus University and Co-director of Centre for Higher Education Futures (CHEF)
