With the globalisation of higher education, this session will explore international press coverage. In particular it will examine the impact that rankings have on higher education institutions in the developing world. The session will be a discussion with the audience, more than a lecture, in which the presenter – editor of a US based but international publication – engages with audience members on:
- How can global news outlets better cover higher education all over the world, and especially in developing nations?
- Do rankings receive too much attention in coverage of global higher education?
- What are the perspectives missing from coverage of topics such as human rights, brain drain, research and more?
This session is curated by Scott Jaschik, Editor, Inside Higher Ed, USA, as part of our 2015 media session series.
