The ability of each higher education system to produce highly skilled citizens in the 21st century has never been more crucial. So to are governments recognizing and responding to global, as well as local, economic and cultural changes. Moreover, as the effects of globalization become more diffused their impact upon individual governments and their higher education institutions are becoming steadily more apparent. This lecture will consider the key issues that are involved in reforming higher education to meet global challenges. The responses from governments will be discussed, with particular consideration of the ways in which they attempt to ‘steer’ higher education to meet their avowed aims. Join us for this engaging dialogue.
