03/24/2022 16:30 03/24/2022 17:10 The Rise of the Digital Professor: And what this means for universities When it comes to teaching and learning, many institutions have now embraced a blend of ‘virtual’ and ‘face-to-face’. So what happens as universities, and their academic staff, move away from being ‘analogue’ and based on a particular campus, to becoming much more ‘digital’ and potentially nomadic? What does this means for not only the staff, their work lives and careers, but also student learning, and the opportunities for universities to become more globally engaged? After all, academic staff can now be more easily accessed and shared between institutions.

In this session, we’ll be bringing together a panel of experts to explore both the challenges and the opportunities presented by the ‘Rise of the Digital Professor’. We’ll discuss how online teaching and learning opportunities will allow academics to move outside the ‘walled garden’ of a particular university. We’ll ask how can staff engage, and be engaged, more globally? Also, we’ll question whether universities will embrace such a rise? And finally, explore what partnerships, networks/consortium have already emerged, such as NEOLAiA and its Focus Academy initiative offering across seven universities. Looking to the future, will more co-developed degrees and initiatives emerge as we start to digitally transcend our traditional institutional walls?
