Going Global is the world’s largest open forum for international tertiary education leaders and specialists. This interactive conference is an unparalleled opportunity to network, debate and explore collaborative solutions to the challenges facing the sector in the 21st century.Tertiary institutions in the 21st century are both globally connected and locally engaged. They play a key role in communities – from helping to develop globally-minded citizens and fostering international partnerships, to creating the conditions for industry collaboration and social innovation.
Therefore, leveraging on Going Global conference in an ASEAN member state, the relationship between the UK and East Asia education sectors could be strengthen. The desired outcome is that the effective performance and sustainability of education sectors in participating countries is improved, leading to enhanced outcomes for beneficiaries. Integral to this project is the premise of shared prosperity whereby the UK and more developed ASEAN nations have increased access to student markets and TNE opportunities and emerging economies are given the opportunity to engage in collaborations which support the growth in capacity and quality of local provision.
The concept we are putting forward is a series of interconnected activities which allows us, through focused discussion and showcasing of UKs strengths, to support the development of the East Asia internationalisation agenda. As a result, a policy paper, developed in consultation with ASEAN policy influencers, at Going Global 2018 will clarify priority areas and the role of the UK and developed East Asian countries leading to more targeted interventions through policy dialogues, national working groups and focused study visits to the UK and provide a baseline for measuring progress and success.
Horizons 2025: ASEAN Higher Education Insights from Going Global 2018 and beyond
With Going Global 2018 (Malaysia) being hosted for the first time in an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member state, the purpose of this report is to capture the key priority areas for higher education (HE) in the ASEAN region, through analysis, discussions and interviews with ASEAN higher education policy influencers and leaders. These recommendations will provide a basis for further debate and discussions, leading on to more targeted interventions which are responsive to ASEAN regional priorities, draw on regional strengths and facilitate mutually beneficial collaborations between the ASEAN and the UK higher education sectors.
