Informing the Public Agenda


The Association for the Study of Higher Education is meeting in Louisville this week. The theme for this year’s conference is “Informing the public agenda for higher education: The role and relevance of research.” With my friends Dan Laitch and Michelle Nilson of Simon Fraser University I’ll participate today in a roundtable discussion about communicating to policymakers, writing for specific audiences, and using social media as part of a communication mix. Too bad we’re presenting at the same time another roundtable discusses “the transformative potential of blogs for the higher education research profession.” I’d like to attend that one; I’ll ask Jana Bouwma-Gearhart for her notes.
