Reimagining universities: speculative scenarios for higher education

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesOral presentation


oin Professor Sian Bayne, Dr Michael Gallagher and Dr Jen Ross from the Centre for Research in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh as we unsettle assumed futures and imagine new, desirable ones for universities. The speakers will share their new speculative scenarios for Higher Education Futures in an event which will be a mix of research-sharing, storytelling and collaboration. We will work with the audience to build visions of what higher education could look like in the context of expansive artificial intelligence, amplified social activism, cognitive enhancement, changing human-machine relationships, climate crisis, unbundling and ennui.
