Abstract

Louisiana State University, Teaching in Higher Education Forum - Tenth Anniversary, Via videoconference link from Vancouver, 16 April, 2007, Impending Changes in Global Higher Education: Cataclysm or Smooth Transition? Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // How can developing nations respond to the massive emerging demand for higher education? Are new approaches needed? Since developing countries will soon account for most of higher education worldwide, their answers to this question will effectively define the global profile of higher education. // The profile of higher education seems likely to change in three ways. First, private, for-profit institutions will play a greater role. Second, distance learning, in all its rapidly evolving forms, will account for a growing proportion of provision. Third, seeing the opening of a massive market, first-world institutions will expand their cross-border activities. // In these remarks I shall focus particularly on the situation in India with some comments on China and the USA.
