Eurasian Higher Education Leaders’ Forum 2019
Future Ready Graduates
June 6 – 7, 2019, Nur-Sultan Сity, Kazakhstan
VIII annual Eurasian Higher Education Leaders’ Forum (EHELF) took place on June 6-7, 2019 at Nazarbayev University (Nur-Sultan Сity, Kazakhstan). This year, we have prepared a series of interesting sessions related to the main theme of this year’s Forum – “Future Ready Graduates”. Leaders of education, business and government organizations, scholars and employers shared their experiences and engaged in debate, exchanged and generated innovative ideas on how institutions could cope with these challenges.
This year’s event focused on the readiness of higher education institutions to prepare students for the changing nature of work environment and their capacity to develop future leaders and good citizens. Today institutions are challenged to maximize the value they bring to students, which increasingly implies internationalization of learning experiences, opportunities to participate in research, provision of lifelong learning opportunities and a strong portfolio of trusted partnerships with leading industry players, to name a few elements. Sessions focused on following sub-themes:
- HEI challenge: changing job market;
- Global imperative and local relevance;
- HEI value proposition: future leaders;
- Future Ready HEI;
- Lifelong Learning: never stop asking;
- Shaping the industry-academia ecosystem.
