All eyes on us: how established summer programmes overcome challenges

  • Thursday 13 Sept
  • Room X, Level 0, Palexpo
  • Level: intermediate
  • Related Expert Communities Summer Schools

When the long-established and most successful summer programmes have to face new challenges, there’s an added catch: everyone’s watching. From changing expectations and new legislation to increased competition and the need to innovate, the challenges – and associated risks of failure or falling short – just keep coming. This session will discuss how we can keep on top of all of this, face our audience (and critics!) with a smile and still give our students what they need.
