Registration: from 9.30

Convened by: Merv Conroy and Phil Jackman (Agape Workplace Initiative) at Birmingham University.

MacIntyre (2009) suggests that a Christian understanding might restore even to the secular university a sense of purpose of the nature of academic enquiry. He argues that the siloing of the university curriculum has dangerous implications for professional education and global well-being and argues that universities can and ought to renew a shared understanding of their mission. This seminar will examine the quest for integrated wisdom for health and education professionals attending university PG programmes and the impact of eroding time in schools for young people to consider values and virtues.

Speakers include: Edwina Pio (Professor of Diversity, Auckland).Wolfgang Mayrhofer (WU, Vienna University).
