Journey to Global Prominence: Harmony of Human Heritage and Advanced Technology

Tracks and Topics

Excellence in higher education can take many forms, from research and education to employability, stakeholder engagement and the broader student experience. This track is concerned with the overall strategy of identifying, planning for and evaluating university excellence in its many forms. The track will offer range of practical case studies from around the world as well as more general presentations on the strategic management of higher education, quality assurance and evaluation. Presentations describing novel applications and strategies are highly encouraged.

Sustainability, climate change and the resulting management of risk are issues of increasing concern for governments worldwide and consequently for higher education institutions globally. This track enables institutions from around the world to showcase the initiatives they are taking or planning in one of more of these areas.

All universities have stories to tell although the massification and globalization of higher education, as well as changes in media consumption (think social media) have changed universities communication strategies. How can institutions not only adapt but seize upon the opportunities offered in this new media landscape? The track will address successful communication, marketing and branding strategies as well as engagement with the media and the public at large, especially when attempting to reach across national borders.

With various initiatives underway in the heart of the Eurasian continent, the region that was once part of the Silk Road linking East Asia to Europe is today on the cusp of rapid development. This advancement also carries over into its higher education sector, developments which are centre-stage in this track. Presentations about developments taking place in the region, especially those that are forward-looking and also those that involve partnerships within and beyond the region will form the core of this track.
