The Academic Contract: How Careers and Universities are Changing
8th Max Weber Programme Academic Careers Observatory Conference
Badia Fiesolana, 19-20 November 2013, Fiesole
The conference will examine the various dimensions of the academic contract and how it is changing, from the point of view of both the individual and the university. It will examine the current status of both academics and institutions and incentives for change, together with the way they affect academic careers. Across four panels, bringing together academics from different university systems, different regions and different career stages, the conference will discuss the current system from a comparative perspective, including the challenges of online teaching. To conclude, participants will reflect on the desired path for future change.
