EHELF-2013

 

Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Education presents conference proceedings of the annual Eurasian Higher Education Leaders’ Forum held 12-13 June, 2013 at Nazarbayev University. The theme of this year’s Forum is ‘Global Trends in Higher Education and their Impact on the Region’. Many internationally-recognized higher education professionals and experts have been invited to share expertise among leaders of academic institutions of the newly independent countries of the post-Soviet Central Asia. At the same time, university presidents, rectors and vice rectors as well as ministerial representatives of Central Asian states have been invited to share their invaluable experience of administering and leading their home institutions in challenging times after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Forum aimed at developing an international dialogue between higher education leaders, policy makers, researchers and practitioners from different parts of the world. We believe this dialogue should be at the heart of collaboration both on individual and institutional levels. Speakers and delegates from more than 30 countries attended the Forum in 2013. Attendees discussed the global trends in higher education and their impact on the region. The Forum has been divided into three plenary sessions: 1) University Leadership, Governance and Accountability; 2) Quality Assurance in Education & Research and Accountability and 3) Trends in Global Educational Hubs.
