OCSLD invites all who lead or aspire to lead a future higher education. Lecturers, Programme Leads, Deans, Subject Co-ordinators Professional Services, the Professoriate, Senior Managers, Fellows and all members of our community are invited to join Dr George Roberts, Principal Lecturer in the Oxford Centre for Staff and Learning Development, with MA Education (Higher Education) participants for a series of five online seminars on higher education today.
We are in a “Higher Education Moment”. Poised to feel the impact of a new regulatory regime and an impending expansion of degree awarding institutions as great or greater than that in 1992. If there was eve an “old normal” there is certainly not yet a new normal.
We will meet fortnightly five times in Semester 1, every other Tuesday, 6 - 7 pm to discuss our higher education moment.
The seminars take place in the University’s online classroom (Adobe Connect). https://vlecture.brookes.ac.uk/pphe18/
The seminars do not require a log in. Simply “enter as guest” and type your name in the space provided.
