Going Global, an annual conference hosted by the British Council, offers an open forum for global leaders of international education to discuss current issues. Since 2004, it has grown from a biennial event in the UK to an annual event alternating between the UK and major international cities. The event provides a platform for networking, and has become a fixture of the global education calendar. Over 1,000 registered delegates from across the tertiary (further and higher) education sectors and various other sectors with perspectives on international education attend.
This year’s conference theme is ‘Inclusion, innovation and impact’. The three day programme of sessions explores innovation systems: how they are formed, structured and driven globally and transnationally. In addition, the discussions focus on what impact an internationalised higher and tertiary sector can have in the symbiotic areas of innovation and inclusion; how impact is delivered; and the outcomes for policy makers, funders, tertiary education stakeholders and institutions.
