One day online conference: Leading Higher Education As and For Public Good - How can teaching and learning contribute to a sustainable future?

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, we had to postpone the May 2020 conference celebrating what we have learned from Formation and Competence Building of University Academic Developers project. Instead, we are convening an online conference on 29 April 2021, and we look forward to seeing you on Zoom then.

About the 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 (from University College London) and Professor Peter Felten (from Elon University) will give two key notes to answer this question, and we will have 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 (from University of Oslo) and Ciaran Sugrue (from University College Dublin). Professor Inga Bostad (from University of Oslo) will moderate a panel on theories and practices of sustainability in higher education.

Who will benefit from this conference?

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.
