Think Ahead TV - Episode 3

Redefining the core values of Higher Education for future society

📅 Thur, 23/02/2023 · 14:00 (BST)
🕓 Duration: 35 mins

What does it mean to be a good leader in Higher Education Institutions? In a new landscape of increased student agency and diverse business models for the sector, it’s important that senior leadership teams in universities are able to drive core values in education that will benefit future societies. Universities have always been sites of knowledge and research, but we must ensure that today’s graduates are particularly informed of the biggest challenges facing the world in order to improve circumstances for both communities and the planet.

In this conversation we’ll be talking about the values good leaders build into institutional culture within Higher Education. We’ll be exploring the importance of sustainability within Higher Education culture and how you can equip your students and staff with the skills to overcome today’s challenges.

We'll be announcing our speakers shortly - register now to be the first to hear who is joining us!
