Exploring Freedom and Control in global higher education
Keynote Speakers: Professor Åse Gornitzka, Professor Jonathan Grant
The Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) would like to extend a warm welcome to all those with an interest in higher education research to the Society’s international annual research conference.
The theme for SRHE Conference 2016, on which the keynotes will focus,is an exploration of issues around freedom and control in global higher education. As higher education has expanded and internationalised, it has become the site for collaboration and debate, contestation and struggle over resources,reforms, access equity and more. This has opened up new opportunities for providing education, pursuing research and developing careers, but it has also closed down options and raised barriers, provoking opposition in some quarters.
