EHELF-2014

 

Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Education is delighted to present the publication of the third annual Eurasian Higher Education Leaders’ Forum. The conference proceedings present papers written by distinguished local and international contributors that attended the Forum in 2014. The papers are grounded in theoretical argument and empirical research and written to provide debate and discussion among policy makers, faculty, students, and staff. Around 350 speakers and delegates and participants from more than 15 countries attended the Forum in 2014. Attendees discussed global trends in higher education and presented their understandings and interpretations of a successful academic institution. The Forum has been divided into five plenary sessions: 1) What is ‘a Successful University’? 2) How to Build a Successful University: Start from a New Institution or Build from the Existing One? 3) Students’ Perspectives on a Successful University; 4) Faculty’s Perspectives on a Successful University; 5) Successful Research Universities. We hope that the annual Forum and its conference proceedings will serve as a valuable resource for higher education leaders, faculty members and policy makers. We invite everyone who is interested in reflecting on the continuities and changes in education development and taking strategic actions to improve their national and local educational environments.
