Global Education Landscape (Plenary)

As 2019 comes to a close, we reflect on a decade of innovation, investment and technology in education and look ahead towards scenarios for education in 2030. Asia’s rapid rise and cross-border live-online tutoring markets. US admissions, student debt, and political pressure. Europe’s inertia and momentum. Africa’s Next Billion. Global student flows in a de-globalizing world.
