New Emerald publication explores future of higher education

Emerald Group Publishing Limited publishes Going Global: The Landscape for Policy Makers and Practitioners in Tertiary Education in collaboration with The British Council and in support of its Going Global Conference, held on 13-15 March 2012 at the QEII Centre in London, UK.  The book brings together a selection of edited papers from previous events, offering an insight into the Going Global Conference and providing a study of the current international higher education landscape.

Touching on the important trends in international higher education and how it can meet the challenges arising from today’s economic and political climate, “Going Global” is edited by Mary Stiasny of the Institute of Education and Tim Gore OBE of the University of London.  Primarily focusing on the importance of developing global citizens and the role of education in addressing this agenda, the book discusses the different models and drivers for global partnerships, the changing nature of international student mobility, and issues surrounding policy and leadership.

Pat Killingley, Director of Higher Education at the British Council adds, “I am delighted to introduce ‘Going Global: Reflections on the landscape for policy makers and practitioners in tertiary education’. The publication brings together a number of experts in the field of tertiary education, each with their own unique perspectives and experiences of international education… a publication of genuine value and interest to the international education community.”
