In October 2021, UCJC held the Global Education Forum 3rd Act with the aim of reflecting on the future of higher education. This event was organised around four key pillars that represent the foundations on which higher education must be built: Entrepreneurship, Well-being, Social Impact and Digitization.
The purpose of this event will be to share experiences related to the twelve points of our Manifesto, which you can learn about here.
As in previous editions, the Symposium will be a learning space showcasing presentations based on the main points that make up the Manifesto. Within each strand, between four and six presentations will be given, with the aim of generating discussion, team reflection and planning among the members of the strand. This year, in addition, all the speakers will share an explanatory video of their presentation prior to the event.
We encourage you to review all the content and conclusions of the GEF and the Manifesto. Shortly, we will send an invitation to those who wish to participate as speakers or moderators.
The objective of this new Symposium will be to share the professional inquiries of the IESEK Learning Community within the framework of the Global Education Forum Manifesto.
Progress and reflections will be shared regarding the professional inquiries presented at the 7th Symposium
Structured around the professional inquiries of the IESEK Learning Community within the framework of the Global Education Forum Manifesto.
As in the previous Symposium, the members of the community who present their professional inquiries must do so in the context of one of the points of the GEF Manifesto, and participate in the corresponding strand, as a speaker presenting their inquiry.
The rest of the community members who want to participate as attendees, must choose a strand, to then generate a learning community, where collaboration, conversation and co-creation arise.
All members of SEK Education Group are invited to share their professional inquiries.
Requirements for submission of professional inquiries:
