CEID Annual Conference 2018: Higher Education and International Development

Call for papers, 01.02.18

Start: Jun 19, 2018 10:00 AM 
End: Jun 19, 2018 05:00 PM

Location: UCL Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL

Higher education has been included in the Sustainable Development Goals and there is broad acknowledgement of its role in building just and prosperous societies.

However, there is a lack of rigorous research on higher education in most lower-income countries, meaning that evidence is often insufficient to bring about policy changes. 

Furthermore, there are a number of contested trends in policy and practice, such as the growing presence of private providers, the emergence of new technologies (including MOOCs), international rankings and concentration of research capacity in elite institutions. Hosted by the Centre for Education and International Development (UCL Institute of Education), this conference brings together academics and policymakers to present cutting-edge research in the field, discuss key issues and debate the role of higher education in sustainable development.

The conference will address the following key themes:

  • The role of higher education in the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Expanding access to quality higher education in the context of resource constraints
  • Research gaps and priority areas for research investment
  • Impact of existing interventions and the role of external development agencies

The event will allow space for the presentation of original research papers, developmental workshops and an open forum. There will also be a keynote presentation by Professor Teboho Moja of New York University (USA).
