Centre for Global Higher Education

'Changing Higher Education for a Changing World’ (Bloomsbury, 2020) explores higher education in the major higher education regions including China, Europe, the UK and the USA. It has 17 chapters that draw on the outcomes of the Centre for Global Higher Education's (CGHE) globally-focused research programmes and sharply illuminates key issues of public and policy interest across the world. 

The book explores issues such as: 

  • 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? 

Please join us in this session to discuss this important new book.
