Date and Time to be confirmed.

UK Universities have been undergoing unprecedented changes cutting across all functions and services. Whether the TEF or the REF, or the future regulatory framework of the Office for Students (OfS), universities will be asked to provide ‘value for money’ and value for students’, the economy and society.

As a result of these external changes, universities have adopted new ways of working. The impact of these measures is wide ranging and changing the way universities, and their staff, work by adopting and adapting to new professional identities.

This seminar will share findings from an LFHE-funded research project and will focus on sharing successful examples of collaboration between academics and members of the professional services. During the seminar you will have the opportunity to work with colleagues in a range of different roles at Keele and explore some of the successful practice uncovered by this national project.

A light lunch will be served.
