The premise is that as the digital world transforms society it brings immense opportunities and significant risks. New technologies and platforms are revolutionising the way knowledge is produced, accessed and used globally. Speed and scale of change are also disrupting labour markets and business models, and while technologies are creating huge opportunities and wealth for some, many more remain excluded, deepening inequality and polarising societies.
Historically, international tertiary education has fulfilled a unique position as a global knowledge producer, developer of high level skills and powerful anchor in local and global society.
In a radically different future world, however, how relevant will it be and what contribution can it make? Going Global will debate its role in this new paradigm, focusing through a policy or practice lens on four roles: Global knowledge producer; High-skills developer; Global society anchor and solution provider; Leader and partner in a future world.
The international event is dedicated to the growth of startups, digital transformation and innovation, and aims to bring together startups, business leaders and executives, investors, students and academics.
The 35 session tracks are structured under the categories: Blended and online teaching and learning; Community engagement; Governance; International higher education; Student services; Colleges, institutes and polytechnics; Open.

This preliminary research on ICT adoption in Africa and the Asia-Pacific suggests that there are serious barriers to their use in educational and socioeconomic development, such as issues of infrastructure support, access to the ICTs, training and skills development, and hierarchical social relations which determine who has access to ICTs.
