Warwick International Higher Education Academy (WIHEA) is pleased to announce that Professor Geoff Malleck from the University of Waterloo in Canada, will be its first International Visiting Teaching Fellow when he arrives for a three-week visit in June.
Geoff’s primary focus is exploring the principles and conditions that drive the ‘Creativity-Innovation-Entrepreneurship’ Continuum and the relationship with economic prosperity and culture.
In addition to his popular lectures in entrepreneurship at the University of Waterloo, Geoff is actively involved in promoting new venture creation across Canada. He was a founding director of the Research Entrepreneurs Advancing Prosperity, a unique and disruptive programme. Geoff also contributed to the development of Waterloo’s 'sixth pillar' in entrepreneurship. Geoff also works with students on professional development and individual brand-building. He has worked with over a hundred aspiring entrepreneurs in the very early start up phase.
I am looking forward to the arrival of Geoff Malleck in June. Geoff will be the first International Fellow to visit the Warwick International Higher Education Academy. With the intention to inspire, international fellows are invited to Warwick to engage with a wide range of staff involved in teaching or the support of learning. At Warwick we take pride in being a highly international university and global perspectives on teaching will no doubt further enrich our international impact over the coming years. Geoff's focus on global employability, enterprise and learning fits well within this agenda. Gwen Van Der Velden, Academic Director of WIHEA.
Full details of Geoff’s activities on campus are available here.
Individuals and small groups will be invited to participate in a Knowledge Exchange Series, and there will be a range of events open to all staff and students which will be publicised in due course. In particular hosted by the University of Warwick Enterprise Partnership, we would like to draw colleague’s attention to our inaugural University of Warwick Enterprise Staff Conference and public debate to discuss the relevance and future of enterprise within Higher Education.
It is a privilege to be invited to the University of Warwick as an International Teaching Fellow. The culture of innovation is something our two great institutions share and I look forward to benefiting from the insights and expertise of the faculty, the administration and the students. Likewise, I am excited to bring to Warwick some of our best practices in this true spirit of knowledge exchange. Professor Geoff Malleck.
