Registration for this high level and interesting conference on the future of Higher Education closes in just 4 weeks.
Places are limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
Higher Education in the 21st Century – Diversity of Mission will address the following themes:
How is institutional diversity valued (or not) by Governments, funding agencies and society more generally?
What impact are league tables and rankings having on institutional diversity?
What are the appropriate incentives to enable institutions to relate research to mission?
How can we better measure and evaluate the contribution that HEIs make to national, regional and local economic and social development?
How are institutions facing up to the challenges of widening participation and cultural diversity?
The conference will have particular significance for newer HEIs as well as for policy makers and funding agencies.
There will be an informal format, with an emphasis on dialogue and sharing ‘good practice’ through case studies and reflective practice in a relaxing environment.
Hosted by the Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland (DIT), the conference is sponsored by HEA, IMHE, IAU, and IUA.
