Lecture

Liz Sproat (English, 1994) is returning to Hull to give a lecture as part of International Women’s Day to talk about her time at the University, her inspiring journey to an executive role at Google and the landscape of the education and skills sector.

International Women's Day

In the twenty plus years since Liz attended the University of Hull, technology has fundamentally changed the way we live our lives. Yet despite this, our schools look very similar to the way they were decades ago. Now Head of Education for EMEA at Google, she’ll share examples of how technology is transforming education and its impact on the research sector. In closing she’ll challenge the audience to consider what the future will look like and how best to harness the positive power of technology in education.

Refreshments will be offered from 6:00pm.
