From: Monday 19th March 2012 to Tuesday 20th March 2012
Venue: Birkbeck College, Malet Street, London
Organisers: London International Development Centre (LIDC); Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU)
Background: Higher education for international development has been, in recent years, a neglected area relative to other educational interventions. Yet higher education (HE) is necessary for the attainment of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and for economic development in low and middle income countries.
- What has been, and should be, the development intention of HE interventions?
- How should development impacts be measured?
- What is our experience with measurement methods and tools to date, where are the gaps and what research priorities emerge?
The programme will be posted online soon.
Who should attend:
The conference will bring together experts from three research sectors: higher education, international development and impact evaluation from academia, think tanks, government agencies and civil society organisations. PhD students are welcome if their research is relevant to the theme of the conference.
Registration is open between 2 February and 5 March 2012.
