Group project work for AUDE Summer School Class of 2021 - 2022

The group project should focus on sector learning from the COVID responses and how this will shape future refurbishments, new developments and/or operational estates and facilities services for the workplace, learning, teaching and research spaces. 

Delegates will be assigned to groups on the first day of the residential, these groups will be the groups delegates will stay in for the duration on the summer school residential programme. 

The Group Project works consists of:

  1. Working with colleagues from across the AUDE community
  2. Exploring key insights from the Summer School
  3. Enabling practical improvements to Institutional performance

Group Project – four territories to explore

  1. Best Practices - Who are the exemplars within Higher Education, and beyond, and how have you engaged with them?
  2. Institutional Application - What have you introduced or applied to your HEIs and what has been the impact so far?
  3. Personal Learning -  What have you learned from being part of this experience and what are you doing with these insights?
  4. AUDE Recommendations - Based on your Group’s work, what are your recommendations and suggested actions for fellow AUDE colleagues?
