Advancing Melbourne Education roundtable

The University is holding a virtual Education Roundtable between April 19-21 and all staff are invited to participate. This is the first of a number of virtual roundtables in which staff are invited to share their views on key themes of the Advancing Melbourne strategy. The Education Roundtable will involve a series of provocations and discussions, held over three days, using an online platform.

Topics to be discussed and debated include:

  • What is the future of the lecture at Melbourne?
  • How can we create more diversity in our classrooms?
  • Should Melbourne embrace more online programs?
  • Why should students come to campus for their education?

Please save the dates to contribute to these online discussions on the future
of education at Melbourne, and bookmark the Education Roundtable page for more
information leading up to the event.
