Leading and managing a new vision for higher-education learning


24 June 2015

A Research on Learning and Education Innovation seminar with Shirley Alexander.

The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), where the presenter is Professor of Learning Technologies, is well advanced in its billion-dollar investment in its campus masterplan. Seminar attendees will be told how UTS developed its vision for the future of learning in higher education and the ways in which that vision influenced the design of the new learning spaces and the use of learning technologies.

The system of projects that were instigated to roll out that vision will be examined in light of the change-theory literature and used to reflect on successes, failures, and plans for the future.
