What State Leaders Can Learn from Higher Education Reforms in Other Countries (session #228)
Come hear expert analysis of what we can learn from other nations’ higher education reforms, and which might hold the most promise for state systems. For example, what actions have our peer countries taken to define what students must demonstrate to earn degrees, hence to take accountability beyond the presentation of data? How have they more efficiently identified low-participation populations for inclusion in higher education? What has been their experience in opening up alternative pathways into and through the system? How does the U.S. context condition and suggest distinct American versions of these reforms?



PARTICIPANTS

Clifford Adelman, Senior Associate, The Institute for Higher Education Policy, District of Columbia


1:15 PM -- 2:00 PM
