The Status of Global Postsecondary Education
Whitney International University System, Advisory Board, 6 March 2007, The Status of Global Postsecondary Education, Sir John Daniel, Commonwealth of Learning // It is a pleasure to experience the gracious hospitality of Randy and Nancy Best in such beautiful surroundings and an honour to be in such distinguished company. Thank you for the invitation to summarise The Status of Global Postsecondary Education in eight minutes. That is a tall order. I recall Pascal's words: "I am writing you a long letter because I do not have time to write a short one." // Let me offer you a few words on each of ten themes: status; expansion; private for-profit; cross-border; distance learning; scale, student support, harmonisation; quality; and international community.
