Keynote: Learning Gain in Context: where does it fit in the turbulent world of HE policy? Ant Bagshaw, Former Deputy CEO Wonkhe
Ant Bagshaw opened our event by providing an overview of the (somewhat gloomy) policy context in which learning gain sits. He challenged the audience to consider: Is Learning Gain (well-defined) too complex for policymaking? Post-Hefce, is there mandate, competence, appetite and budget for improving policy through research? What can/should researchers, universities, policymakers do about it?
