Roundtable events explore big issues facing Irish Higher Education sector

19 Apr 2023 | Tonya Watts Advance HE offers members the chance to get updates from subject experts in series of live, online events

Advance HE is to host a series of round table events focusing on the challenges facing Higher Education in Ireland.

The online meetings will be open to Advance HE members and are being convened by Advance HE’s Head of Membership in Ireland, Tonya Watts.

“The Higher Education sector faces challenges on a range of fronts,” she said.

“The purpose of these events is to give our members updates from Advance HE’s subject experts on some of the key issues, such as the Higher Education Authority Bill and Gender Pay Gap reporting, and to listen to our members’ feedback and their views about where they feel we should most target our support.

“Advance HE is a sector-led charity and our role is to help Higher Education institutions and professionals across the globe to be the best they can be.

“That means giving academics and Higher Education professionals impactful opportunities for learning, both from our own experts and from each other. We will be listening carefully to members’ concerns and developing packages of support and learning in response.”

Tonya will be hosting this series of four Roundtables on key themes in late May :
