In view of the challenges of the 21st century, a focus on multi- and interdisciplinarity is more important than ever. The vision of the MACAS symposium series is to develop a humanistic approach to education that combines various disciplines in a single curriculum.
This years CHER Conference has the title "Universities as political institutions - HEIs in the middle of academic, economic" and social pressures and will be held in Jyväskylä, Finland on August 28-30
This is a part-time, fully online course, and runs from September 2017 to April 2018. Open to higher education staff around the world, registration for our Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education is ending on June 30th.
The conference in Aarhus will play an important role in the joint international endeavour of developing and strengthening the discussions about the purpose and role of the university as an institution. The conference will, therefore, be central to the formation of an initiative to establish a lasting joint international academic venture into the philosophy of higher education.
