David Price OBE has been announced as the first keynote speaker for the 2019 Learning, Teaching and Research conference at our award-winning Lanarkshire campus.
An expert in organisational learning for a complex future, David talks, trains, writes and advises around the world on some of the biggest challenges facing education, society and business: maximising our potential to be creative, innovative and fulfilled citizens and solving the problems of student, civic and employee disengagement.
He also focuses on understanding the global shift towards open organisations and systems of learning while his recent book, ‘OPEN: How We’ll Work, Live and Learn in the Future’ has been an Amazon best-seller since its publication.
David is a Senior Associate at the Innovation Unit, a not-for-profit social enterprise, and co-founder of We Do Things Differently, a culture change practice.
Dr Claire Carney, UWS Associate Vice-Principal (Education), said: “We are delighted that David is going to deliver our keynote address on the first day of the conference. Delegates will enjoy hearing from such an established thought leader in the future of Education, who will challenge us to think differently about the purpose of Education in an ever-complex society.”
In addition to his keynote speech, David will also deliver a masterclass on day one of the conference, Wednesday, June 26.
The conference will offer delegates the chance to:
- Discover innovation in research, teaching, enterprise and learning
- Network with colleagues from academia, business and industry
- Explore the learning landscapes of our new multi-million pound Lanarkshire campus
