My name is Alexander Heinz and I lead King’s College London’s Summer Education Programme. I have always been interested in innovation at universities and worked in key roles building King’s summer portfolio since their beginning, constantly finessing their programming, diversification, institutional collaboration and their expansion overseas. Today, King’s summer schools are among Europe’s largest and most diverse – from pre-university and undergraduate students to professionals and the retired.

One of the fastest moving areas of higher education today, summer schools require new dynamic thinking in our sector. I would like to join colleagues in the EAIE Expert Community Summer Schools to create useful opportunities for thinking about creative summer programming allowing us to build sustainable, growing summer schools. The EAIE’s fantastic network can be a catalyst for change wherever we work. I believe through my own 10 years of summer school experience, we are only seeing the beginning of the potential of summer programming. We’ll stay ahead of the game if we learn from each other. By intensifying the ways we communicate in the EAIE, we can help bring the community even closer together. It would be a great privilege to work on the EAIE Summer Schools Expert Community.
