Alexander Heinz

My name is Alexander Heinz and I am Senior Associate Director for Research and Innovation at King’s College London’s Summer Programmes. Since 2018, I have had the wonderful opportunity to serve as Vice-Chair of the Summer Schools Expert Community, working systematically to update what the EAIE is offering to its summer community. I’d like to create a truly relevant forum designed to serve us all in our different working environments. I see the opportunity to build a diverse hub for experts and fresh, confident conference speakers. Short courses can change the outlook of individuals and of international education. To stay ahead at our places of work, we must learn from each other – and the Expert Community is a powerful framework within which to do this. I have a deep interest in education innovation that began with my own European education in Germany, France and England and has continued in my 10 years of finessing the summer programmes at King’s through diversification, institutional collaboration and expansion overseas. The programmes I've worked to build are amongst Europe’s largest and most diverse. I would welcome the opportunity, working with you all, to steer the Expert Community as its Chair over the coming years.
