HUMANE webinar and workshop: Designing the Total Student Experience for a Digital Era - 18 March

Designing the Total Student Experience for a Digital Era

Interactive workshop & webinar

March 18 2021, 13:00-14:30 CET

 

12 months in, we now understand all too well that the pre- and post-COVID worlds are dramatically different.

In the pre-COVID world, most Universities followed a standard playbook for supporting the student experience. But since the first lockdowns of 2020 and the rapid shift to online teaching and support, that playbook has been openly questioned. Many institutions now feel that they are scrambling to meet student expectations of online provision and support.

What do we know about post-COVID student expectations and their levels of satisfaction with online provision? What have we learned so far about delivering an effective digital student experience? What role will ubiquitous digitisation have on student experience strategy and delivery? What are the other big changes underway amplifying technological changes and their impact on the student experience?

These are just some of the issue we hope to explore in our interactive workshop and webinar, delivered with our partner EAB, about designing a Total Student Experience in a Digital Era.

This free 90-minute programme aims to offer a peer learning experience for our members and senior leaders of the student experience, using a combination of small group workshops and plenary webinar sessions.

HUMANE Webinar - Designing the student experience of tomorrow - 5 November

HUMANE autumn webinar programme
No way back: opportunities emerging in a post-Covid world

 

Designing the student experience of tomorrow:
three scenarios for a post-Covid world

Thursday 5th November 14.00–15.00 CET

We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for this event, to be delivered in partnership with EAB. Registration is free and open to HUMANE members and residential school alumni.

The rapid impact of demographic ageing, and the application of Artificial Intelligence, Virtual and Augmented Realty and Big Data to new models of higher education pre-dated Covid, but the pandemic has accelerated consideration of these matters at a breakneck pace.

What will students’ experience of higher education look like in a world where life expectancy in Western Europe will increase to 100 years?; where embedded education technology will not be the exception, but the norm?; where the average shelf-life of knowledge imparted in a typical undergraduate degree programme will continue to decline, but more rapidly?; where the rates of participation in forms of higher education, will continue to grow?

Conducted in collaboration with our partner, EAB, our 5 November webinar will explore these and other questions through the lens of three potential scenarios. We’ll consider the big trends playing out on both sides of the pandemic, in a lively and engaging webinar format making liberal use of online collaboration tools.

HUMANE Webinar - The future of international student mobility in a post-Covid world - 21 October

HUMANE autumn webinar programme
No way back: opportunities emerging in a post-Covid world

 

The future of international student mobility

Wednesday October 21st 12.00–13.00 CEST

Registration is free and open to HUMANE members and residential school alumni.

For a generation universities have enthusiastically pursued international strategies. Different institutions have prioritised different dimensions of internationalisation, but international student mobility has been a central feature of almost all institutions’ international engagement strategies.

The early evidence indicates that the impact of Covid on international mobility in many European higher education systems has been minimal. In other systems such as Australia’s, the decline in numbers has been catastrophic.

But as the Covid crisis continues to linger, what is the long term outlook for institutions' international strategies? Will we quickly slip back to a version of a pre-Covid world? Or will Covid, combined with a heightened awareness of the carbon footprint of international mobility fundamentally change things?

Our next autumn webinar will attempt to canvass these and many other questions. Three panellists will briefly speak to various aspects of the webinar topic, followed by a discussion where panellists will respond to your comments, questions and observations. We're looking forward to a lively and informative debate so we look forward to welcoming you.

The panellists are:

  • Dirk Mulder, a former International Director in several Australian universities and now the Principal of MulderPR
  • Dora Longoni, International Director at the University of Padua
  • Bart Van De Laar, Programme Leader - International Strategy at Utrecht University

HUMANE Annual Conference webinar - Diversity and Inclusion: fostering institutional happiness and preventing harassment - October 8-9

HUMANE autumn webinar programme Annual Conference
Diversity and Inclusion: fostering institutional happiness and preventing harassment
Thursday October 8th 13.30-18.00 CEST to Friday October 9th 10.00-13.50 CEST

Registrations are now open for HUMANE's Annual Conference, part of HUMANE's autumn webinar series. Save the date and register here.

All webinars are free and open to HUMANE members and residential school alumni.

The evidence shows that the more equal, diverse and inclusive a workplace, the greater its capacity for innovation and to deliver better results than the competition. So why do we still have a problem?

Universities excel in challenging conventional wisdom and have often been at the forefront in challenging inequality and discrimination.

Yet their workforces rarely match the diversity of their student bodies, diversity and inclusion initiatives achieve mixed results and as the Me Too Campaign has shown, tackling harassment is definitely unfinished business.

Our programme aims to tackle these and other issues with a focus on: overcoming barriers to more equal institutions; equality and innovation; effective leadership of equality, diversity and inclusion; organisational development approaches to EDI; and practical examples drawn from institutional case studies.

With an impressive line-up of speakers drawn from across Europe, we’ve designed a programme that will engage you with the big issues and expose you to stimulating group discussions with a diverse, multi-cultural audience.

We look forward to welcoming you to the programme. Click here to register.

HUMANE webinar with EAB - From crisis to strategy: digital transformation or digital delusion?- 30 September

From crisis to strategy: digital transformation or digital delusion?

We are pleased to announce that registrations are now open for the first in our series of autumn webinar programmes. This programme will be delivered in partnership with EAB. Save the date and register here.

Digital transformation or digital delusion?

Pre-pandemic, digital transformation in universities was an aspirational goal. In 2020, at warp speed, it emerged as a necessity for business continuity. The question is no longer “how to build a digital university,” but rather “how quickly can it be done.”

But how can we build a genuinely transformative digital strategy for the long haul? This question will be the focus of our webinar programme.

With our partner EAB, we have developed a 5 minute survey on digital transformation prioritization, investments and implementation progress. To access and complete the short survey click here.

The aggregate results will be presented during our webinar and provide topical context for the panel discussion that will follow, as well as discussion of digital transformation case studies. We would be most grateful if you could complete the short questionnaire. A good response rate will lead to a more interesting, informative and ultimately useful webinar.

This webinar is free and open to HUMANE members and residential school alumni, as are all of the other programmes being offered in the autumn series. Click here for further information about these programmes.

We look forward to welcoming you to our programme on the 30th of September. Click here to register.
