The Globalisation of Higher Education
Lord Dearing died in 2009 having left an indelible mark on UK higher education with his landmark 1997 report Higher Education in the Learning Society. He also had particular impact on The University of Nottingham, having been Chancellor from 1993 to 2000.
In recognition of Lord Dearing’s contribution to higher education, and to give others the opportunity to shape the debate on its future, The University of Nottingham will host the “Annual Dearing Higher Education Conference”. In 2011 the conference will take place at the East Midlands Conference Centre on Thursday 17 February.
Keynote speakers include David Willetts and Alan Langlands.
Details of the conference and registration arrangements can be found at the Globalisation of Higher Education site.
