After experiencing the busiest academic years of our respective lives, we’ve decided to adjust the pitch of GlobalHigherEd, somewhat, and include a broader mix of long (for a weblog) analytical entries with shorter updates regarding important new reports, interesting visualizations, video clips, links to key stories or event-related websites, and so on. This should enable us to keep the weblog moving on a more measured pace, and also complement our active Twitter feed (which now has 2,700+ followers).
Alas, the pace of life when GlobalHigherEd was launched — during sabbaticals in Paris (Kris) and Amsterdam (Susan) — won’t be returning soon so our aspirations to only post longer (1,200-2,000 word) analytical entries has now become unrealistic. We’ll be sure, though, to keep the tone and focus of GlobalHigherEd the same as we continue to map out what is a fascinating, complicated, and ever-evolving global higher education and research landscape.
With all best wishes,
Kris Olds & Susan Robertson
