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?

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

Wednesday September 30th 14:00-15:00 CEST

Save the date and register here

 

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.

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

No way back: opportunities emerging in a post-Covid world

HUMANE summer webinar programme

As the public finances of all European countries come under intense pressure as a result of the decline in economic activity resulting from the pandemic, the risks that will manifest for universities are all too apparent.

But as with every crisis, there are also opportunities to build on the experiences of the so called Great Lockdown.

Policy changes that would have taken years to agree have been implemented in weeks; on-line teaching has grown at a rate that could not have been imagined three months ago; and many leadership teams have aligned around a common purpose that would not have been possible in times past.

Over the next couple of months, we are pleased to offer a series of free, short webinar programmes addressing post-Covid opportunities for all HUMANE members and residential school alumni. The first of these are:

Making the most of Covid-19 emergency management gains: an introduction to Lean
Wednesday June 17th 11.00–12.00 CEST
The near certain financial fallout from the pandemic will drive demand for far reaching changes in key processes in universities. Lean thinking is a collection of principles and methods to maximise value whilst minimising waste. What are the key tenets of Lean and what needs to be done to adopt them?

Emergency management and learning. Will we learn lessons from the pandemic?
Thursday June 25th 10.00–11.00 CEST
Contrary to assumed wisdom, the research evidence about disaster and crisis management shows that organisations commonly do not learn lessons from these experiences. How can we ensure that we do?

The space race: a tipping point for blended learning & universities’ work space?
Wednesday July 1st 12.00–13.00 CEST
Many service industry leaders and futurists have predicted that our experience of the Great Lockdown will sweep away many of the artificial barriers to moving decisively into a digitised world. Will this be true for higher education? Or will we slip back to a version of a pre-Covid world?
To secure a free place, register here

Each of our webinars will feature a panel of HUMANE members and invited guests, with an opportunity for participants to question and challenge panellists as well as make their own contributions.

Details of panellists and the format of each programme will be provided upon registration following the links provided above.

Participation is free for HUMANE members and Residential School alumni.

We look forward to welcoming you to these events.

Future events will be advertised in the HUMANE e-Newsletter.
