What do better futures for higher education look like – and what can be done to bring these into being? Welcome to a webinar at Aarhus University, Tuesday 6 February, at 15:00-16:00.
During the webinar, Laura Czerniewicz and Catherine Cronin will give an overview of the recently published volume Higher Education for Good: Teaching and Learning Futures, including the 5 tenets of a “manifesto for higher education for good” which emerged from the book’s chapters. Following this, they will invite participants to respond to the book’s themes and the manifesto, and to share their own ideas regarding higher education for good.
