Universities are experiencing unprecedented levels of disruption resulting from the global Covid-19 emergency. And yet they continue to flourish. Virtual learning environments and virtual campuses are growing rapidly. As universities lead the charge against the pandemic, it is clear that they will have a leading role to play in rebuilding society and the economy after the pandemic.
On Friday 22 May 2020 at 4pm Scott Brownrigg and HEDQF will host a virtual roundtable to discuss the future of the university campus.
Chaired by Scott Brownrigg’s Director of Education, Ian Pratt the panel will comprise:
- Michael Olliff, Managing Director and Education Sector Champion, Scott Brownrigg
- Dr Mark Mason, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Student Experience), University of Chichester
- Professor Osama Khan, Vice Provost, University of Surrey
- Jonathan Stewart, Managing Director, Gleeds
- Mike Entwisle, Partner and Education Sector Director, Buro Happold and HEDQF Research Group Member
- Ty Goddard, Director, The Education Foundation, and Chair of Edtech UK
- Jeremy Tanner, Director of Estates at Birkbeck, University of London
- Julian Robinson, Director of Estates, London School of Economics, and Chair of HEDQF
This discussion will consider whether universities will now think differently about their campuses and physical space needs. The lockdown has offered us a glimpse of a different, more sustainable future. Will universities be able to take this vision and future-proof it as they recover, adapt and grow?
This event follows the virtual roundtable ‘What if schools were designed for wellbeing?’ on Wednesday 6 May 2020. Follow Scott Brownrigg on social media where the recording and written report of this event will be released in due course.
