This morning I was at the UKTI‘s Business in Asia event at the cumberously named UK Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform ( BERR) in London to gain insights and more links for work in/with/for China, India, the Philippines and Malaysia. There’s plenty to follow up! Somehow, a conversation with the Indonesian embassy representative was also included and I look forward to our next meeting as that was a great introduction.
Flexible higher and professional education undertaken over several years (or decades) and in a variety of countries is clearly growing and if anyone has any official statistics to back that up, I’d be interested in seeing them, please. In contrast to meetings five or more years ago, there was far greater acceptance of non-traditional learning routes, interest in making individualised international learning happen and interest in my work in that field. So, it is time to send the promised follow-up emails.
