Higher Education in Asia: Moving Ahead

Designing Higher Education: Big Deal Partnerships, Technologies and Capabilities


This talk advances new views on higher education design, stepping beyond prevailing problems and perspectives and stimulating broader contributions. The 2020 pandemic has shocked already fragile business and academic models, and the time is ripe for innovating global online learning, shifting towards Asia and lifelong learning, and investing in 21st century institutions and partnerships. Rather than dwell on dystopian discontents, the webinar charts narratives for developing the industry and the field. It speaks to commercial, governmental and collegial communities to inject major research-driven insights into contemporary transformations and research.
