Venue: Online via Zoom
Registration deadline: March 25, 2021
Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the conference celebrating the outcome of the Formation and Competence Building of University Academic Developers project was postponed. Instead, you are cordially invited to this one day concluding conference.
The conference focuses on sustainability as a public good and poses the question: How can teaching and learning lead to a sustainable future? Professor Ron Barnett, University College London, and Professor Peter Felten, Elon University, will give two key notes to answer this question, and there will be Reading Circles to discuss the recent book chapters from Leading Higher Education as and for Public Good: Rekindling as Praxis, edited by Tone Dyrdal Solbrekke, University of Oslo, and Ciaran Sugrue, University College Dublin.
Professor Inga Bostad, University of Oslo, will moderate a panel on theories and practices of sustainability in higher education.
All those who register will receive a free copy of the e-book Leading Higher Education as and for Public Good: Rekindling as Praxis.
The target group for this conference is employees in higher education, both teachers and leaders, but also administrative staff, university educators and students - and we welcome higher education politicians.
