Foundation Year Network Conference 2021:

Influence through Innovation and Disruption

Conference dates: Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th July 2021

The aim of the conference is to help identify road-maps for change, providing inspiration through innovation and disruption. This may be through case studies or personal reflections that honestly embody the challenges to the current educational landscape.

What do we mean by innovation? It seems to be a very overused term. It tends to refer to something new or a change made to something that already exists. During these unprecedented times, we have all had to adapt to a brave new world of educational delivery and how we develop relationships in a digital world. How, as a sector, have we adapted and innovated to deliver a high-quality educational experience?

Disruption isn’t just about replacing something that is well defined and embedded but redefining what education should look like in a fast-paced complex knowledge-based society. The current restrictions to the pandemic have changed the current ‘space and place’ of working and learning. What have we learnt? What do universities have to offer for the future?
