The system shock of the last two years raises uncomfortable questions for our universities. Students, staff (and government) question aspects of the status quo – from the cost of degrees and the quality of accommodation, to learning delivery models and the opportunities of hybrid working. Is it time for a fundamental rethink about our places and our purpose? As the physical and the digital become ever more closely entwined what can we learn from our students about how they want to study, and about the wellbeing and inclusivity aspects of learning environments? As we work hard to take on all the new learning of the pandemic period, what do estates teams need to do to create spaces that make both students and staff keen to enjoy life on a vibrant campus? We’ve been living through a period of immense flux. It’s time to refocus. But with so many competing demands for our attention, and so many ideas about what the future holds – refocus on exactly what?
At AUDE’s Big Conversation event with both digital and in-person formats at the University of Sheffield, we’ll be asking delegates to help us prioritise between some of the huge and competing demands for our time and our universities’ investment. Does the push towards net zero outrank any other challenge? Does the ‘cost of living crisis’ demand we place our focus on energy generation? Where does EDI sit within our estates planning? How can AUDE focus its work to foster co-operation between competing institutions? Join us for stimulating conversation, and clarity, and your chance to refocus on the ways to achieve everything that is demanded of you as estates senior leaders.
The AUDE Big Conversation is an intimate event, only allowing 100 delegates to attend to allow for ample opportunities to network with members of university estates and facilities teams from across the AUDE membership as well as our loyal supporters. Be part of the conversation.
