Higher Education Policy

Convenors:
Professor Carole Leathwood, London Metropolitan University
Dr Terri Kim, University of East London
Dr Karen Smith, University of Hertfordshire
 

This network will be of interest to all those concerned with higher education policy including academics, practitioners, managers, policy-makers and organisations with an interest in the HE sector.

The overall aim of the network is to provide a forum for the discussion of higher education research and policy issues. In particular, it aims to facilitate:

  • The presentation and discussion of research related to higher education policy
  • The sharing of information, expertise and ideas about developments in HE policy
  • Discussion between HE policy researchers and the users of that research with a view to enhancing the potential of research to inform policy.
  • Consideration of potential future research agendas and possibilities for collaboration.
