HIGHER EDUCATION REAL ESTATE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

Including the implications of the digital revolution in education

Thursday 5 October 2017 | London

Meeting the challenges and reaping the opportunities of delivering 21st Century, fit for purpose higher education. Getting ahead of competition in the evolving digital age.

Higher education real estate faces considerable challenges in setting and implementing strategies to meet both current requirements and the demands of an uncertain future.  A future in which it is difficult to predict the numbers of students, the ways in which they will seek their education and how that education will be funded. 

Real estate planning must be long term but technology and social change is impacting what is to be delivered and how it is delivered at a rapid rate.  Change can be ultra-rapid, particularly with anything open to ‘digital delivery’.  For universities, undergraduate studies are not their only, or sometimes principal, focus.  Research and graduate education are important functions and revenue generators.  At most institutions occupational training, in various forms, is playing an important role.  Apprenticeship education too is bound to grow. Distance, blended, team learning and flipped classroom programmes are all being deployed while demands for ‘more contact hours’ continues.  In addition, there are increasing opportunities for the institution to engage with the local and wider commercial environment.  These considerations have significant implications for real estate planning.

What then should be the response of institute heads, CFOs and estate managers to these pressures and uncertainties?  In a keynote introduction, talks, panels and numerous case study presentations this one day briefing reviews what are the challenges and how they are being addressed.

With case studies, including from:

  • Birmingham City University
  • Imperial College London
  • Richmond upon Thames College
  • Swansea University
