Futures for Collaborative Partnerships in Higher Education
Historically, universities have relied on the brand, visibility and location of their campuses for the acquisition and transmission of knowledge. In the transformational digital age, universities now want to reach out beyond the security of their own walls, to leverage their legacies and power, and to export learning, rather than simply import students. Universities want to change, to flex their curriculum, to stay relevant and to strive constantly for excellent learning experiences. Many universities know that, even with the best will in the world, many of these aspirations are beyond their ability to deliver. Are partnerships the answer to enabling greater innovation, finding new ways to achieve diversification and meeting growing global demands from students - by sharing expertise, risks, rewards and success? Come and decide for yourself in this insightful panel session, which will offer glimpses of partnerships and plans already in train to meet these challenges and opportunities.
