The University of Sydney, Australia and FLAME University, India jointly hosted an online seminar to discuss 'The Future of the University'.
Online learning isn't new, but in response to the unprecedented impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a global drive towards comprehensively converting learning forums into an online format. The university of the future depends on maximising student engagement in the digital classroom and beyond.
There were nine speakers from both universities, as well as an industry panel from India, the Netherlands, and Australia. Topics covered included best practices for digital resources and incorporating the students' voice in the digital learning space. The industry panel considered what employers are seeking and how to best arm new graduates with the skills they will need in this changing environment.
