A dream is happening?!: This University is groundbreaking innovative for the following reason(s): …
Preamble: This is not supposed to be a “normal” session- The time where knowledge has been shared in the classical sense, meaning a “professor” lecturing while the student/audience listens is over. At least it´s not what we are interested in. We believe in the potential of the group and the wisdom evolving through collaboration and exchange.
We want to apply this thesis during this session and therefore ask for Your active contribution.
The key question for our discussion shall be - where from Your subjective viewpoint- is University education and learning really fundamentally innovative? Where is it taking place? Who are the acteurs behind? What is their philosophy, their visions, what are the drivers, the common principles and mostly: What and how are they doing (it)?
We are looking for Your story, Your best practice example or maybe just Your explanation about an institution you have heart about- an organization where you (would) want to be a student, which is contributing to society and ready for the future of the 21st century, not just by its rhetoric but also through its actions and visions.
We would like to investigate where the “paradigm shift in higher education” is already taking place and to understand better what innovation means for You in this context.
In the best case, you would contact us before the session, sending us a short paragraph/further details in reference to our title: A dream is happening?!: This University is groundbreaking innovative for the following reason(s) …
We are seriously interested in the outcomes of this session, as we would like to take it as a reference-base for further research and a documentary movie.
Thank you in advance to contribute and to join this discussion.
It is indeed close to the what we are trying to achieve here, but you need to include more language about global connections and collaborations. You need more specifics related to international implications and aspects.
The deadline for submitting your revisions to this proposal is November 7, 2011 at 5 PM CST or 23:00 UTC. Email Lucy Gray at email@example.com if you make changes and need your proposal reviewed again.
