The upcoming U21 Annual Network Meeting and Presidential Symposium will be hosted by the University of Hong Kong next year. A key feature of the programme will be the Presidential Symposium where members are invited to contribute a case study to showcase best practice across the network. The theme for next year's Presidential Symposium will be 'Global Universities and the Workforce of the Future’. The increasing use of artificial intelligence, automation and digital technologies is transforming the nature of work and the skills required to succeed. We invite submissions on how universities are equipping students with the critical knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of the digital workplace.
The Annual Network Meeting is a chance to showcase work, share ideas and inspire others, and this could be an opportunity to show the key initiatives of your university to a global audience.
Case Study Criteria and Submission Deadline
U21 and the University of Hong Kong are seeking case studies that showcase outstanding examples of institutional efforts to adapt to the changing needs of society and provide students with the tools they need to succeed in our ever-changing digital world. We particularly welcome case studies that include both staff and students in highlighting the ways in which your university is contributing to this important issue. The deadline for submissions is Friday 1 December 2023, and successful applicants will be notified by mid-January 2024.
