Spring Forum 2015

Theme: Equity in access

The spring issue of Forum, due out in April, will explore the following issues:
  • Gender imbalances in mobility, academia and leadership
  • Gender mainstreaming
  • The non-traditional and minority students (eg Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) students, students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds, mature students, students with children, students with disabilities, migrant students)
  • Financing equity in access (eg scholarship programmes for non-traditional learners)
  • Services supporting equity in access (eg preparing and supporting non-traditional students and staff prior to/during their trip abroad)
  • Delivery systems enhancing equity in access
  • Entry, retention and success rates
  • Culture of home and host societies

Summer Forum 2015

Theme: Strategic partnerships

Higher education institutions are increasingly realising the importance of international partnerships to attract a more diverse student body, to promote greater mobility of staff and students, and to impact curriculum development, collaborative teaching programmes and research networks. No longer are international partnerships being seen simply as an ‘add on’ to an institution’s internationalisation activities – they are becoming a core part of the overall strategy. How can institutions make the most of their partnerships? How do they go about creating and managing them? What happens when partnerships go wrong? And what impact do they really have on student learning?

The upcoming issue of summer Forum will focus on the following topics:
  • Sustainability, equality and reciprocity in partnerships 
  • Selecting, managing and ending partnerships
  • Mobilising your institution for partnerships
  • Measuring successful partnerships
  • How partnerships impact and transform HEI’s 
  • Leveraging multilateral partnerships
  • New partnership opportunities in Key Action 2 of Erasmus+ 
  • Partnerships with non-HEI’s (business, government, civil society) 

If you are interested in contributing an article, we are accepting submissions of up to 1200 words. Please send your contribution for review to by 1 May 2015.
