The chief executive of Advance HE, Alison Johns, will be joining other leaders working in international higher education at this year’s Going Global conference in Malaysia.
The theme of the event, which is being held in Kuala Lumpur, is “Global connections, local impact”. Advance HE’s work with international institutions aims to ensure that UK universities and higher education will reap the benefits.
On Wednesday May 2, Alison will be giving a masterclass for vice chancellors, rectors, presidents of Universities and HE providers, about strategic leadership in turbulent times. Advance HE is giving a second masterclass, led by Kathryn Harrison-Graves, head of global partnerships, on developing, recognising and rewarding high quality teaching and learning in higher education.
On Friday May 4, Alison will be chairing a panel debate about new challenges for leaders in higher education. The panel will also feature Professor Arham Bin Abdullah, director, industry relation division, higher education department, ministry of higher education, Malaysia and Professor Richard A. Williams OBE, vice chancellor, Heriot-Watt University, UK.
The following week on Monday May 7, Advance HE will hold its inaugural HEA Fellowship Forum in Hong Kong at the Technological and Higher Education Institute (THEi). Alison Johns will meet Fellows at the event which will include short presentations about leadership in learning and teaching. It will also be an opportunity to celebrate the success of newly-conferred HEA Fellows.
A senior fellowship writing retreat, facilitated by Principal Fellow Professor Abby Cathcart, QUT (Queensland University of Technology), will take place earlier in the day.
*Advance HE has had 21 applications for Fellowships from eight Hong Kong HEIs as part of the QUT/Trade and Investment Queensland/HEA collaborative programme to support and mentor Fellows.
