The free online York Global Forum is an opportunity to discuss issues and best practice related to management and teaching that affect us all. It's aimed primarily at our short course partners, but all are welcome. It's hoped that together we can build a sense of global community through discussion and the exchange of ideas.
Each session will feature a session leader who will introduce a topic through a short presentation. This will then be followed up by small group discussions in breakout sessions.
