ACLF 2020: Big Picture Series - The future of universities by Experience ANU published on 2020-06-04T07:01:42Z The ANU Crawford Leadership Forum 2020 presents the Big Picture Series: Australia in a COVID-19 world - The future of universities. The COVID-19 pandemic is shaking the foundations of university systems the world over. Revenues have plummeted, teaching and research disrupted, and international students stranded abroad. Even before the pandemic, universities were thinking hard about their role and relevance in societies profoundly changed by technology and awash with expert advice. How well have universities adapted to COVID-19 and what changes to the university model are here to stay? More broadly, what should the university of the future look like. What is core university business in a Covid-19 world? Join panelists; Professor Michael A McRobbie from Indiana University; Professor Lily Kong from Singapore Management University; Professor Brian P Schmidt, Vice-Chancellor of the Australian National University; and discussion chair, Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell; as they debate the direction of higher education in Australia and the world.
