Going Global 2015

Going Global 2015, the annual forum organized by the British Council and gathering policy makers and practitioners in international education, will take place on 1 and 2 June 2015 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London, UK.

This year’s theme is ‘connecting cultures, forging futures’, and it will be explored through this three perspectives:

  • Academic discipline and subject cultures: including the impact of multi-disciplinary teams from various fields of study; as well as different cultures of research, teaching and skills development.
  • Organisational cultures - particularly those of higher education institutions; business; skills providers; NGOs and social enterprises.
  • National, regional and local cultures and the extent to which connecting people and ideas across these cultures generates a creative force leading to innovation.

The British Council has published a call for proposals for the participation in the 2015 Going Global conference. Interested participants are invited to submit a proposal on the Going Global website by 31 October 2013. Unique perspectives and practical examples relating to one of the above themes are welcome. Successful proposals will link policy and practice, for example by explaining how specific experiences in the education sector have informed policy developments.
