Thursday 17 February 2022 at 12h00

The SFDN is delighted to welcome Professor Mark Brown, Ireland’s first Chair in Digital Learning and Director of the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) to discuss the transformation taking place in higher education. Prior to taking up his position in Dublin, Mark was director of the National Centre for Teaching and Learning at Massey University, New Zealand and he is a passionate advocate for innovation in higher education.

In this webinar, Professor Brown will discuss transformation in the post-pandemic higher education context. What do students need, what do faculty need and where should development initiatives focus their energy and resources?

All SFDN members are welcome. We also encourage members to share this invitation with faculty members who may be interested in the topic.
