Event Materials

This event is now archived and we are pleased to provide the following event media and assets, along with the original event overview.

Changing Higher Education for a Changing World explores higher education in the major higher education regions including China, Europe, the UK and the USA. It sharply illuminates key issues of public and policy interest across the world. Do research universities make society more equal or more unequal? Are students graduating with too much debt? Who do we want to be attending universities? Will learning technologies abolish the need for bricks-and-mortar higher education institutions? What can countries do to improve their scientific performance? How can comparative teaching assessment and research assessment become much more effective?

Following an introduction by co-editors William Locke and Simon Marginson, other contributors will discuss their chapters*, with time after this for Q&A, chaired by co-editor Claire Callender. Please join us to discuss this important new book.

This webinar is jointly presented by the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education and the Centre for Global Higher Education.
