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

From 2018 to 2021, the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEPUNESCO) launched a comprehensive international research on ‘SDG 4: Planning Flexible Learning Pathways in Higher Education’. The expansion and diversification of higher education have led in many countries to highly fragmented HE systems, which are difficult to navigate for learners. In addition, there are today also more diverse learners, such as first generation students, adult learners and returnees to higher education that require more flexibility in access, progression and preparation for the labour market. The study therefore aimed to collect knowledge on both appropriate policies and good practices for the design and implementation of flexible learning pathways in higher education. The project includes a stocktaking, a global survey and eight in-depth country case studies (Chile, Finland, India, Jamaica, Malaysia, Morocco, South Africa and the UK). Drawing from the research findings, this webinar aims to present selected research findings from both the international research and more specifically the UK case study.

CGHE webinars are fully open to participants. They are interactive, enabling attendees to speak directly in the webinar, ask questions of speakers when called in by the chair and see all other participants. At any time you can communicate directly with others, either all together or on a one-to-one basis, through the webinar Chat.
