On June 27, SAS will hold the Dare to Experiment in Higher Education forum, which will act as a discussion platform on the topic of the transformation of contemporary universities.
Tradition lies at the core of higher education. Yet, universities must keep changing to stay afloat intellectually and institutionally. Experimentation allows us to walk the line between stability and innovation. Unlike parachuting foreign models, it is a way to borrow ideas while also ensuring that the solutions we develop fit the context.
Experiments are necessary for Russian universities to formulate their own answer to the key questions facing higher education. Who should control the educational design? Where does the educational vision come from? What should the role of a student really be? Does technology make a real difference? What determines universities’ transformation?
- Leading experts in the field of higher education transformation
- Four moderated discussions
- Experience in implementing the Experimental Higher Education MA program
We invite university leaders and experts in the field of higher education transformation, as well as potential applicants of the Experimental Higher Education master’s degree program, who might see participation in the forum as an opportunity to enroll and study for free.
Registration, program, and all the details about the forum are available on the website.
Those who did not have time to register for participation in the Forum can join the discussion via an online broadcast on the SAS YouTube channel.
Venue: UTMN, School of Advanced Studies (SAS).
Forum languages: Russian, English (with simultaneous translation).
