|About Higher Education Summit 2015
With higher education a key driver in shaping cultural, social and economic well-being for all countries, in both good and challenging economic times, the requirement for a forward thinking education sector is paramount if it is to meet the demands for qualified professionals and research establishments. Academic institutions; government; business and industry all have a role to play in driving the agenda for students and researchers, improving the economy, and establishing New Zealand's place as a quality provider of higher education. It is these issues which are the foundation for this event.
Endorsed and supported by the leading higher education associations, this event is now into its 7th year and is New Zealand's leading event focusing on the key issues and developments for tertiary education. It brings together the senior representatives from across the higher education sector including universities; polytechnics and institutes of technology; Wãnanga; private training establishments; peak industry associations; heads of government departments and agencies; and accreditation bodies.
Presentations are made by senior professionals including Vice Chancellors and CEO's of leading higher education providers and representatives from government organizations. Themes for the 2015 event are New Directions and New Opportunities including: globalisation; collaboration; commercialisation; quality & standards; preparing students for future success; funding and the role of technology in modern education provision.
