If economies of all stages of development are to weave stronger civil society bonds, higher education needs to reach people who are excluded. This interactive workshop enables participants to explore a future where higher education is not just for the privileged and the lucky; and where innovation flows across networks of established and new providers - South-West-East-North.
A series of opening provocation statements will cover factors crucial to addressing the issue of widening access including:
- The roles of public, private and civil society providers;
- How do you scale pedagogies and quality?
- The role of technology;
- How do institutions and people fit in?
These issues will be discussed in more depth through interactive dialogue, leading to a synthesis discussion that will lead to a “Manifesto for Global Access for all”.
