Keynote title:

How would university courses differ if we took the needs of professional practiceseriously?

Higher education courses don¹t need to meet the needs of work, but many of them seek to do so. However, they are based around models derived from the academic disciplines. This presentation explores what courses might look like if we attended to the nature of work and the practices that graduates engage in and rethought our courses accordingly.
