Agility in education
Transforming the Supertanker
Embedding constantly changing industry practices and demands into the curriculum is difficult.
It’s in the nature of our industries to think short term - often driven by a current project - but converting this into a longer term conversation makes sense for all parties, and can reap dividends.
- Utilise alumni as advocates and experts to evangelise new relationships with industry;
- Show industry CEOs that higher education has changed; it's more responsive, and has a wider quality offer than just graduates for short-term projects;
- Bid to industry for outsourced research projects or as a means of posing new open-ended questions;
- Supply idea generation;
- Help companies get rid of churn by supplying graduates with real "stickability".
