U21 Educational Innovation Symposium

U21 Educational Innovation Symposium 2023 – Scoping the future in Higher Education: Transition or Transformation?

Uncertainty and disruptions have dictated the trajectory of Higher Education in recent years. Many areas of modern life, including all levels of the education sector, have been affected by the impact of the pandemic. Yet, transition in Higher Education is not a new concept. With many universities quickly implementing online options to their learning, research, and other operations, the Higher Education sector has shown an ability to adapt and innovate with great dexterity. However, many argue that now is the time for long-lasting transformation; be that in terms of curriculum, assessment practices or developing a new generation of educational leaders, global partnerships, and collaborative initiatives. We look forward to three days of intensive and engaging discussion as we explore these issues in depth, share our knowledge and prepare for a very different future.
