Vice-Chancellor’s Global Question Time
On 1 March 2023, NTU’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, took part in a lively panel discussion on the future of international higher education at NTU’s e-sports and broadcasting centre, Confetti X, as part of NTU Global Week 2023.
The panel, hosted by NTU academic and Notts TV presenter, John Collins, featured representatives from seven of NTU’s closest global partner universities spanning 4 continents:
- Communication University of China
- Panjab University, India
- Makerere University, Uganda
- I-Shou University Taiwan
- Lviv Polytechnic National University, Ukraine
- The Catholic University of Lille, France
- Humber College, Canada
The panel responded to questions from the live studio and online audiences on a range of hot topics spanning how international collaboration between universities post-pandemic might help to find solutions to current and future global challenges to how universities can enhance environmental education and future sustainable practice.
In his concluding remarks, Professor Peck thanked the panellists for their rich contributions to the conversation and reflected on his nine years as Vice-Chancellor at NTU. Professor Peck stressed the importance of being open-minded about what you can learn from international universities and the value of talking to and learning from people with different experiences from different cultures and different ways of doing things.
Professor Peck added that he was deeply encouraged by the conversation and hoped the Global Question Time event had brought different perspectives to a range of key issues facing global higher education today, but also a fair degree of consensus on how international universities can work together to solve a range of global issues in the future.
Partnerships Development Workshop
One key takeaway from the event will be an international partnerships development workshop delivered by colleagues from CADQ and NTU Global on 28 March 2023.
