Rethinking International Higher Education: COVID-19 Pandemic and New Geopolitics

 

 

Peking-Lingnan-Wisconsin Education Forum - Rethinking International Higher Education: COVID-19 Pandemic and New Geopolitics 

 

The development of higher education is inseparable from the external environment. Today's higher education is in turbulent times. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant changes to the world economically, culturally and socially. Equally important, the pandemic has made geopolitics for more complex than before. Competition between major powers is becoming increasingly fierce, and the traditional international order is undergoing severe challenges. When we analyze the current situation and prospects of the internationalization of higher education, we must consider external environmental factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the new geopolitics.

 

 

This year’s Education Forum will invite researchers, practitioners, and students from Peking University, Lingnan University, the University of Wisconsin – Madison to share their understanding of the environment of today’s higher education, university changes and students’ experiences. The specific topics of the Forum include:

 

  • How have the COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical reshaped the external environment of higher education and its internationalization?
  • How do colleges and universities respond to opportunities and challenges from the external environment?
  • What is the actual learning experience of higher education students in a time of change?
  • How do countries promote the internationalization of higher education and the reform of universities in the current complex contexts?
  • What are the changes of student mobility and international scientific research cooperation during COVID-19?
  • What are the prospects for the internationalization of higher education?
