dc.description.abstract 2ND WORLD SUMMIT OF MEGA-UNIVERSITIES, Cross Border Delivery: Experiences of Mega-Universities, New Delhi, 25 September 2005, Mega-Universities = Mega Quality? written by: Sir John Daniel, Asha Kanwar (Commonwealth of Learning) & Stamenka Uvalić-Trumbić (UNESCO) presented by Sir John Daniel // It is a tremendous pleasure to be with you. Speakers always say that, but for me this event really is very special. I am honoured to give a keynote address at this Second World Summit of Mega-universities. // When I coined the word mega-university a decade ago I did not imagine that it would become part of the world's educational vocabulary. I never dreamed that a decade later I would be attending the First World Summit of Mega-universities, that splendidly memorable event hosted by China at the Shanghai TVU. I am flattered that you have asked me to speak again at this Second World Summit of Mega-universities. You must not share the view of the session chair who once introduced me by saying, 'anyone who has not heard John Daniel speak before will have been looking forward to this moment'. // At the Shanghai Summit my title was Mega-universities = Mega-impact on Access, Cost and Quality. For this Summit you have chosen a theme which is dear to me: Cross Border Delivery: Experiences of Mega-universities. To address this theme I shall ask simply Mega-universities = Mega quality? I have included a question mark that was not there in Shanghai. // To tackle this question as it relates to cross-border delivery I have invited two co-authors to help me. Professor Asha Kanwar, our higher education specialist at the Commonwealth of Learning, has recently done research on the impact of cross-border higher education on developing countries. My former UNESCO colleague, Stamenka Uvaliæ-Trumbiæ, leads the UNESCO-OECD process to develop quality guidelines for cross-border higher education. // Our first key question is simple. Can cross-border higher education help developing countries respond to the growing demand for higher education? Can cross-border HE satisfy the three 'A's: accessibility, availability and affordability? en_US
