The 11th International Workshop on Higher Education Reform will be held between August 25 to 27, 2014, at the Memorial University, St. John’s, in Newfoundland (Canada). This year, the key theme is focused on students. The key theme for the workshop is outlined as following:
Presentations are invited, and discussions will primarily focus, on themes related to reforms and innovations regarding accessibility and affordability of post-secondary studies, conditions and modes of learning, the transition from study to work, and, for adult students, the integration of higher education with other aspects of their professional, personal and civic life. As the relationship between HE and labor markets and employment systems is changing and the borders of HE expanding, there are many new institutional innovations, programs, forms of learning, and transition mechanisms and routes both into HE, from HE to the world of work, as well as from employment and domestic and civic duties back into HE.
