Connect Event Series

The start of the 2019-20 Advance HE membership year saw the introduction of a significantly enhanced range. As part of this enhanced range we launched our ‘Connect Event Series’ of webinars and face-to-face events, open to all those who work for an Advance HE member institution.

 

Webinars

The Connect Event Series webinars are driven by the desire to provide a more sustainable, digital approach to engaging with our members as well as ensuring we are taking a forward thinking approach to member support. The webinars have the alternating themes of ‘facing the future’ and ‘global perspectives’ and focus on creating and sharing new knowledge as well as an opportunity to engage in discussion with colleagues from Advance HE member institutions globally. All of the webinars are recorded, so if you are unable to join them live, you can catch up in our Advance HE Connect group.

People tasked with ‘showing leadership’ frequently find their actions constrained by time-hungry, admin-burdened systems and ill-fitting structures.

Face to Face Events

In addition to the webinar series, we will also be holding four member-networking events over the course of the year. The events are in the format of workshops and aim to encourage member institutions to come together and explore solutions to key thematic challenges. The workshops will cover the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Leading the Academy, Governance and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and aim to provide participants with the opportunity to hear from thought leaders and participate in conversation on how their institutions are preparing the next generation of learners for living, learning and working in an ever-changing technological environment.
