Professor Stephanie Marshall, Queen Mary’s Vice-Principal (Education), led the event which took place in The Octagon at Queen Mary’s Mile End campus and involved a panel of senior academics who are leaders in their field and innovators within their institutions.

Professor Marshall was joined by:

  • Ewart Woolridge CBE - founding Chief Executive from 2003 to 2013 of the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education
  • Dr Camille Kandiko Howson - Associate Professor of Education in the Centre for Higher Education Research & Scholarship (CHERS) Imperial College London
  • Professor Malcolm J Todd - Deputy Vice-Chancellor / Provost (Academic & Student Experience) at the University of Derby
  • Annika Ramos - Queen Mary Students' Union Vice President Education
  • Dr Marian McCarthy - Former Vice President for Teaching and Learning at University College Cork
  • Nona McDuff OBE - Pro Vice-Chancellor, Students and Teaching at Solent University

There was a lively and candid debate with inspiring examples of how they have led change and its impact. 

A great discussion

Professor Stephanie Marshall, Vice-Principal (Education), said: “It was a stunning panel, with absolutely great discussion and everyone there left wanting more.

“The future of the leadership – most particularly academic leadership – of teaching and learning is a key issue for all universities. How best to both listen and respond to the student voice, engage students in co-creation of the educational experience, and deliver an exceptional learner journey leading to outstanding graduate outcomes, is of key concern for all leaders at all levels - both staff and students.”

The event also marked the launch of the recent publication of Strategic Leadership of Change in Higher Education and the fifth edition of A Handbook for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Professor Marshall edited both publications which are available now and include contributions from global higher education thought leaders.
