To celebrate the end of the first hundred seminars conducted under the aegis of the Centre for Global Higher Education, we are putting together a panel of CGHE researchers to discuss the very raison d’être of the research centre. Simon Marginson, Director of CGHE, Tristan McCowan, Deputy Director of CGHE, and Lorraine Dearden, a Co-Investigator on CGHE’s social and economic impact of higher education research programme, and Head of Quantitative Social Science at UCL Institute of Education, will be debating the value of international higher education research. The conversation will include such considerations as the importance of international higher education research for development and policy.
Claire Callender, Deputy Director of CGHE, will chair the debate.
All seminars are free and open to the public. No advance booking required.
