World education: the new powerhouse? A British Council Learning event held in Hong Kong

Headline Speakers

As global markets develop rapidly, governments perceive that innovation and economic growth will be generated from growing global networks of researchers, students and institutions. But what challenge does this present to traditional roles of universities and colleges? How will this change the purpose and practice of higher and tertiary education? Who are the new players and partners – governments, business, academics, and students? What is the relationship between them and how is this shifting expectations, roles, responsibilities and contributions? Going Global 2011 explores these challenges.
