What: Round Table Discussions: Parallel Session
Overview: These round table discussions will focus on some of the key themes network members have identified on the horizon (or in the present) for higher education.
This session will consider if degrees are still necessary and relevant for employment. It will hear perspectives from member institutions around the world to begin a discussion on the theme. If interesting ideas emerge they can be considered for investment from WTUN for exchanges or future projects. These sessions may be where ideas start for new work streams for WTUN Members.
