Advance HE organised inspiring talks that have given me new ways of thinking. Its panelists have made me question my beliefs and I feel that I have a much richer and deeper understanding of the topics that were presented within higher education. Highly recommended!"

Fit for the Future: Adapting practice for the new paradigms of higher education

The HE landscape is shifting and diversifying to meet the changing needs of students and employers. Post-pandemic changes to student expectations, experiences, and prior learning combined with external factors necessitate changes to how higher education is structured and provided.

Providing diverse HE models can help ensure that personalised, quality learning opportunities are accessible to all. This member benefit will be exploring how we can adapt key areas of our education practice to these new modes of higher education.

Generative AI: Beyond Assessment

Large Language Models and other forms of AI are influencing ways of working and will revolutionise how we approach research, collaboration, teaching and learning. There is a recognised need for a considered, less polarised exploration of the issues and opportunities AI presents for regulators, institutions, staff and students alike.

This member benefit takes us beyond current debates on AI and assessment to consider in-depth other ways the technology will impact higher education and the communities we serve.

Creating a culture for Strategic EDI Change

Leading and achieving meaningful transformation and lasting change in inclusivity requires a multifaceted approach involving a deep understanding of the organisation’s culture, its values, and its stakeholders.
Developing institutional confidence and cultural competence to achieve success is a significant undertaking and requires a shared commitment and leadership from across communities.

This member benefit looks at creating and implementing a clear vision and mission for real change.

Growing the HE workforce of the future

Looking to the future of the higher education sector, it is vital to consider the workforce that will drive its success.

This requires a strategic approach to ensure institutions can identify, recruit, develop and retain the necessary talent in their academic, professional and ‘third space’ communities.

This project provides insight into emerging trends, understanding potential new roles, the people development required, and the impact on promotion and recognition structures.
