There is widespread agreement that universities are undergoing a profound
transformation but much less agreement on what these changes mean and how
we should characterise them. The Digital University Network has stressed
the role of new technologies in transforming practice within the
university. The Accelerated Academy has presented the tempo and rhythm of
academic life as an analytical lens through which we can productively
examine these changes. The Platform University network has explored the
cultural political economy and organisational sociology of the digital
platforms which are increasingly ubiquitous within higher education. In
this symposium we bring together leading figures from the latter two
networks in order to explore their intersections with our own work, as well
as how they relate to each other.
