Join the UWA Arts Union Education Portfolio & UWADU for the second instalment of the Bachelor of Arts (BA) Seminar Series entitled How Can Students Adapt to the Modern Arts Degree? With The Honourable Michael Kirby.
Michael Kirby is a former Justice of the High Court of Australia, serving from 1996 to 2009. Kirby received a Bachelor of Arts (1959), Bachelor of Laws (1962), Bachelor of Economics (1965), and a Master of Laws (First-Class Honours)(1967) from the University of Sydney. We are very honoured to hear from such a prominent and respected academic and professional in his field.
Justice Kirby will be debating current UWA Arts students on the question of how students can approach and adapt to changes to the tertiary education sector, particularly in relation to:
► The evolution towards a student-driven learning style and shift towards a flipped classroom model in Arts;
► The increased digitalisation of education in Arts and;
► A focus on ‘deliverables’ within the Arts degree which emphasises a need to up-skill Arts students to equip them for the job market.
This event is free to attend for all UWA students, staff and members of the wider community. Please register your attendance at the link below:
