Gateways to Education.
A discussion with Professor Scott Bowman, CDU Vice Chancellor.
Part of the 2022 stretched conference
Date: Wednesday, 23rd March 2022

As the first person in his family to go on to higher education, Professor Bowman has had an extraordinary life. Growing up in the UK in a loving home but with few books and little focus on education, his pathway led him from a hospital-based radiography scholarship to two Master degrees, a PhD in Clinical Decision Making, and finally to the Northern Territory as Charles Darwin University’s (CDU) eighth Vice-Chancellor and President.
In this interview we will ask Professor Bowman about his early years and what he learned about education, his move to the NT, and his vision for meeting CDU’s strategic plan, which is to be courageous by making a difference. With his focus on social innovation and living a meaningful life, we look forward to hearing from the Vice Chancellor about adult literacy and numeracy challenges of the Territory.
Prepare to be inspired!
