Society for Research into Higher Education Annual Conference 2008: Valuing Higher Education
Deadline for abstract submissions: Thursday 31 July 2008.
Today, economic values can seem to dominate higher education: throughout the world, governments seek to develop their higher education systems to improve national competitiveness in an increasingly globalised market place. Individuals, too, may have economic reasons for seeking higher education. Yet economic values are not the sole drivers: moral, social, philosophical and educational values are all central to the debate.
The Society welcomes scholarly and empirical contributions on the wide variety of issues envisaged under the conference theme. You are invited to join this exploration of 'valuing higher education' by presenting a paper, sharing in a symposium based around your own and others' research or scholarly work, organising a poster or simply by attending the Conference, or the Postgraduate and Newer Researchers Conference on the same theme.
