Barbara HollandSocietal Expectations of Higher Education Institutions: The Strategic Role of Community Engagement
Higher education around the developed world is undergoing large scale change because of two major forces – external expectations for greater effectiveness and efficiency and internal adaptation to new modes and methods of working with knowledge. These forces are already altering academic culture and creating new educational strategies and networks. Increasingly, the practice of community engagement as a form of teaching, learning and research in partnership with communities and other sectors is proving to be a powerful tool for creating change in how universities approach knowledge production and dissemination. Community engagement is becoming an essential strategy for connecting academic knowledge to the “big questions” challenging our communities and the world.

15.15-16.15pm: Keynote and Q&A Speaker 2:

Sir David Watson, Professor of Higher Education at the University of Oxford – click here for bio

David Watson 2“Soft citizenship:” the university and civic engagement

Building on the analysis in his The Question of Conscience: higher education and individual responsibility  (IoE Press, 2014), David Watson will examine the relationship between higher education, the state and civil society, in both an historical and philosophical context.  He will conclude by suggesting that the university has a special role in fostering a type of  “soft citizenship,” structured around personal responsibility and Amartya Sen’s concept of “public reasoning.”

 

16.15-16.30pm: Closing Comments

Building on the national curriculum for Postgraduate Supervisor Support and Development devised by a NAIRTL working group, this one day workshop will address key areas in the lifecycle of supervising a research postgraduate student.

Using reflective exercises and a peer-learning approach, workshop participants will engage in discussions and explore case studies focussed on common issues faced by supervisors such as “The modern doctorate and changing role of the Supervisor”,  “the Supervisors’ roles and responsibilities”, “Fostering student independence” and “Supervision styles”.

The workshop is offered to all staff employed in Higher Education in Ireland who have, or will have, a supervisory role in relation to postgraduate research students.
