Is it time to rethink the University?
Jeremiads abound on the end or the death of modern universities. There are claims that they are been severely compromised by neoliberalism and social changes and left behind by technological advances. An increasing number of writers believe the university has been transformed turned into safe spaces, an extended school environment, that infantilises students.

Many people describe this crisis in academia but few offer any visions of the future and fewer still try to propose alternatives.

In this talk Professor Dennis Hayes, an expert in educational development, will describe whats gone wrong and discuss some attempts to save the university sector, making it fit-for-purpose for the 21st century.  

Dennis Hayes is Professor of Education at the University of Derby where he is chair of the College of Education Research Committee and the programme leader for PhDs in education. He is a founder of the campaign group Academics For Academic Freedom (AFAF) which is now a membership organisation with a members blog. He is the co-author of The Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education (2008), which predicated the coming of the therapeutic university.

He has just edited Beyond McDonaldization: visions of higher education which will be published by Routledge in early 2017.
