EDDi readers are a smart bunch. We asked ‘what next for international education?’ and from Bangkok to Boston, Britain to Beijing you’ve responded.
The result is our biggest ever edition. Eleven insightful pieces asking ‘what next?’.
And not everyone agrees with each other.
There are contradictory views. Some pieces predict dramatic change, others foresee very little. Some argue for a tightening of markets, others a loosening. In the middle, some set a hopeful tone; ‘what next’ offering the potential for positive, progressive change.
Both are essential reading…or listening.
Bringing a new feature to EDDi, our lead articles also come in audio form. Kindly narrated by Jason Lasky, if your preference is ears over eyeballs, you can listen (via Jason) to Deborah and Nunana’s predictions.
EDDi’s lead writer, Dr Stephen Whitehead, also provides his own thoughts:
Plus, covering student exchange programmes, through hot-desking in schools, to predictions there’ll be ‘no more snow days’, there are articles from regular contributors and some new ones:
It’s a dangerous business making predictions. Especially in a public forum such as EDDi - so, thank you to all those who’ve been brave enough to share their thoughts, feelings and wisdom.
Finally, for those who get one, enjoy the holidays.
EDDi will be taking a break too, but we’ll be back in August with more great content, opinion pieces, and with a new series of our signature academic digests.
Enjoy the articles. Happy reading (and listening).
