Considering the circumstances many of our colleagues are operating in, we have moved our flagship International Higher Education Forum online, as #IHEFonline.
#IHEFonline consists of five live online seminars, each one exploring a different facet of the fast-changing world of higher education. We will explore the future of international higher education, and consider the geopolitical, ethical and reputational challenges we face in international engagement, and scan the horizon for areas of innovation that will enable us to lead the way in internationalisation.
The first two sessions were held on 25 March 2020. Three others will be held at the end of April.
You can book onto each seminar separately for £85, or book onto all three for £195.
This live online seminar will look at the risks and opportunities inherent in transnational education operations, and how to navigate between the two.

12:00 - 13:00
Managing risk: assessing hidden risks in TNE operations
Jazreel Goh, Director, Education, British Council China
Professor William Locke, Director, The Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education
Professor Catherine Montgomery, Professor in the School of Education, Durham University
Dr David Pilsbury, Pro-Vice-Chancellor International, Coventry University
Professor Jenny Lee, Center for the Study of Higher Education, The University of Arizona
The UK is a world leader in transnational education and as we embark on the next decade this is an area where we can really leave our mark. But the success of TNE operations is affected by a wide variety of environmental and organisational risks. In this session we uncover some of the risks most often overlooked when initiating TNE operations and explore what strategies can mitigate those risks to ensure success.
