HEA Research and Policy seminar/webinar



Higher education for the future: flexible pedagogies that empower learners for complexity, uncertainty and change


The next HEA Research and Policy seminar/webinar will be based on a HEA-funded research inquiry into the relationship between HE pedagogy and developments around flexible learning.


The research considered the pedagogical questions that arise about purposes and outcomes of HE, in an era of increasing 'flexibility' facilitated by technological changes, globalisation of the sector, rising participation and changing employer expectations. It will be presented by Professor Daniella Tilbury and Dr Alex Ryan from the University of Gloucestershire. Professor Tilbury is Chair in Education for Sustainability and University Director of Sustainability at Gloucestershire, while Dr Ryan is Associate Director of Sustainability (Academic).


It will be held on 12 November in York and starts at 12:45. The event can be attended either in person or via Blackboard Collaborate. There will be a buffet lunch for anyone attending in person, which will be available from 12:00. Further details about the event are available here.
