DBA in Higher Education Management 10th Anniversary Conference
Disruptive Change and Innovation in Higher Education
Monday 17th September, 2012
Hosted by International Centre for Higher Education Management (ICHEM), University of Bath
Higher education is currently experiencing what has been described as a period of disruptive change. The significant forces from the external environment including the financial crisis and globalisation are impacting substantially on higher education. As well as these external factors higher education institutions are experiencing numerous disruptive forces including dilution of funding sources, changing student demographics, questions regarding the quality and value of qualifications as well as increased competition within the sector. It has even been suggested that globally higher education is enmeshed in a crisis which some commentators have likened to the recent economic bubbles and which threaten the long term sustainability of higher education institutions and systems in their current form.
This conference looking at the impact of disruptive change on higher education institutions and the broader higher education sector internationally will feature keynote addresses by three respected international higher education experts, each with a different perspective on the challenges faced. The conference will feature interactive sessions examining how the forces of disruption are impacting the steering, governance, management and operation of institutions and systems of higher education.
