About this event
The Education Thematic Group is delighted to announce our forthcoming Spotlight series. Each month, we will present an interview with a Capabilities scholar in the field of Education, followed by the chance for a coffee and chat. We ask each interviewee to tell us how they came to be interested in the Capabilities Approach, the focus of their current research, and how they have been impacted by the pandemic. We hope this will be an inspiring way to build our Education TG community.
We are thrilled that our first guest is HDCA President-Elect, Professor Melanie Walker, and will take place on Friday 29th October from 1-2pm UTC. Professor Walker is the first President to be elected from the Global South and holds the SARCHi Chair in Higher Education and Human Development at The University of the Free State, Bloemfontein in South Africa. Melanie will be interviewed by Dr. Patience Mukwambo, Lecturer in Education Management and Policy studies at The University of Pretoria.
Please come and join us – all welcome!
