CGHE Webinar 181

What is ‘higher education studies’ and what are its uses? A panel session

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.

What do we mean by ‘higher education studies’, the field of social science research that underpins the Centre for Global Higher Education and this webinar series? What kind of academic inquiry falls under this heading? What are the purposes of the research and scholarship, what are its themes and issues, what are the other disciplines that have influenced it, and what is the contribution of this research to higher education and to the world? What is it in the work of higher education researchers that can make the average vice-chancellor or president sweat and the best minister of education beam with gratitude? Or vice versa.

Our panel of active researchers in higher education studies will each briefly tackle the question in the webinar title before inviting the participant audience to join with questions and discussion. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see and hear the research field up close and personal, and to help it to better connect with its core missions. What is your take on what should be the focus of higher education research? What are the burning issues right now that must be addressed?

This webinar replaces the webinar originally advertised on decolonisation in Latin American higher education. That webinar will now take place on 23 March 2021 and you can register here.
