The Thought Leadership Series is bringing leading international and national experts to VU to explore the future of work and study. It aims to inspire thinking and stimulate discussion on VU’s Academic Program of the Future.
The Academic Program of the Future is a key part of VU’s Transformation Agenda, as we consider:
- how we ensure that VU’s future academic program prepares our students to navigate the increasingly complex world of work
- what qualifications, programs, units and other forms of offerings we will pursue for the future
- the best way to actively advance the unique opportunities and advantages afforded to us as a proudly dual-sector, multi-campus, international institution.
The series will be hosted by the Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Vocational Education & Pathways).
About the Academic Program of the Future
The VU Way commits us to preparing ‘Future-Ready Graduates’: graduates that have the ‘knowledge, technical skills and 21st century capabilities required to thrive in the uncertain world of future work’.
- This presents the how – a model of blocked, high-engagement, student centred teaching and learning.
- The Academic Program of the Future will articulate the what - the specific sets of single and dual-sector programs, courses and non-award offerings that will reinforce the unique competitive advantage that the Block Mode brings to VU.
All members of the VU community, including staff, students, alumni and industry and professional bodies are invited to help develop our Academic Program of the Future.
