As you are aware, the HELM annual programmes are in full swing with exciting workshops, courses and events currently on offer.
As part of our mandate to capacitate and develop the sector, we are planning an in-person consultative and interactive workshop for Deans.
Bearing this in mind, we would like to invite you to join us at an in-person Deans workshop in Cape Town. It starts with an informal dinner on Thursday, 3 November 2022 and then continues with a full day session on Friday, 4 November 2022. Your input on a programme that would be dedicated to the critical work Deans do, and how to prepare for and support them in their roles, is critical. “Nothing for us, without us” is the motto which underpins this invitation to you.
There is no registration fee and HELM will provide one night’s accommodation for the out of town Deans at the workshop venue (to be advised shortly), and cover the conferencing costs of the event for all participants, so there is no registration fee. However, your university will be required to cover the costs of your own travel and airport transfers to Cape Town.
The main topics to be discussed at the Deans workshop will be as follows:
1. Welcome and introductions – Oliver Seale
2. Objectives and overview – Denise Zinn
3. Deanship in complexity and change – Oliver Seale
4. Leadership and management development for Deans – Denise Zinn
5. Summary and Plan of Action – Oliver Seale
We will provide you with more information on the programme and details on the workshop shortly.
