Our usual podcast format is on its Easter break, so this week there’s an opportunity to enjoy highlights from the launch of a new book on the social purpose of higher education in the 21st century.
In The New Power University, Jonathan Grant argues that to remake the social contract between universities and the public, universities must embrace “new power” values that focus on participation, networks governance and radical transparency.
With Jonathan Grant, Author of The New Power University and Professor of Public Policy at the Policy Institute, King’s College London; Henry Timms, co-author of New Power; former universities minister Jo Johnson; ‘Funmi Olonisakin, vice principal international at King’s College London; and chaired by Debbie McVitty, Editor of Wonkhe. There’s a link to the full video version of the event on the site.
