International Engagement Series

Watch the catch-up webinar below:

The first International Engagement in Higher Education Series webinar, has our guest panellists discussing the purpose and barriers to international engagement and partnerships.

There are many questions being asked with regard to universities preparing to re-emerge from the global crisis. Will their global engagement agenda be about further expanding market share? Will it be about strengthening connectedness with our closest neighbours? Will this be about re-building their reputation? Or will this be about reclaiming our status of knowledge leadership for a better world? What is the role of universities in global engagement in the Asian century?

Moderated by Melissa Conley Tyler from the Asia Institute, panellists draw on their expertise in international relations, diplomacy, higher education policy and Asian Studies in this provocative discussion.
