Lingnan organises international symposium to discuss the implications of globalisation on higher education
Issue No. 72 Oct 2017
To discuss the implications of globalisation on higher education in the Asia Pacific region and the challenge of resurgent nationalism on the trend of globalisation, Lingnan University co-organised the international symposium “Contesting Globalisation and Implications for Asian Pacific Higher Education: Resurgent Nationalism in International Higher Education” with the Asia Pacific Higher Education Research Partnership (APHERP) in the US, University College London in the UK, Peking University in Mainland China and Hiroshima University in Japan from 19 to 20 October.
The Symposium has invited distinguished scholars from the UK, the US, Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and India to discuss how tertiary institutions from different regions in Asia responded to the resurgent nationalism and its challenges to globalisation, as well as internationalisation in higher education.
Apart from strengthening its international research collaboration, this international symposium Lingnan University also enhanced its teaching and research standards and benefited its student by enriching their learning experience. In particular, the symposium offered opportunities for students of the newly launched Master of Arts in International Higher Education and Management programme to exchange with experts and leading scholars in higher education studies from different parts of the world.
