Future of HE: Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education

Lead Research Organisation: University College London
Department Name: Education, Practice & Society

Abstract

The last two generations have seen a remarkable world-wide transformation of higher education (HE) into a core social sector with continually expanding local and global reach. Most nations are moving towards, or have already become, 'high participation' HE systems in which the majority of people will be educated to tertiary level. In the UK HE is at the same time a pillar of science and the innovation system, a primary driver of productivity at work, a major employer and a mainstay of cities and regions, and a national export industry where 300,000 non-EU students generated over £7 billion in export-related earnings for the UK in 2012-13. In 2012, 60 per cent of UK school leavers were expected to graduate from tertiary education over the lifetime, 45 per cent at bachelor degree level, compared to OECD means of 53/39 per cent. Higher education and the scientific research associated with universities have never been more important to UK society and government. HE is large and inclusive with a key role in mediating the future. Yet it is poorly understood. Practice has moved ahead of social science. There has been no integrated research centre dedicated to this important part of the UK. The Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education (CEGHE), which has been funded initially for five years by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), now fills that gap.

On behalf of the ESRC CEGHE conducts and disseminates research on all aspects of higher education (HE), in order to enhance student learning and the contributions of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to their communities; develop the economic, social and global engagement of and impacts of UK HE; and provide data resources and advice for government and stakeholder organisations in HE in the four nations of the UK and worldwide. CEGHE is organised in three closely integrated research programmes that are focused respectively on global, national-system and local aspects of HE. CEGHE's team of researchers work on roblems and issues with broad application to the improvement of HE; develop new theories about and ways of researching HE and its social and economic contributions; and respond also to new issues as they arise, within the framework of its research programmes. An important part of CEGHE's work is the preparation and provision of data, briefings and advice to national and international policy makers, for HEIs themselves, and for UK organisations committed to fostering HE and its engagement with UK communities and stakeholders. CEGHE's seminars and conferences are open to the public and it is dedicated to disseminating its research findings on a broad basis through published papers, media articles and its website and social media platform.

CEGHE is led by Professor Simon Marginson, one of the world's leading researchers on higher education matters with a special expertise in global and international aspects of the sector. It works with partner research universities in Sheffield, Lancaster, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, Netherlands, China, Hong Kong SAR, Japan and USA. Among the issues currently the subject of CEGHE research projects are inquiries into ways and means of measuring and enhancing HE's contribution to the public good, university-industry collaboration in research, the design of an optimal system of tuition loans, a survey of the effects of tuition debt on the life choices of graduates such as investment in housing and family formation, the effects of widening participation on social opportunities in HE especially for under-represented social groups, trends and developments in HE in Europe and East Asia and the implications for UK HE, the emergence of new HE providers in the private and FE sectors, the future academic workforce in the UK and the skills that will be needed, student learning and knowledge in science and engineering, and developments in online HE.

Planned Impact

The Centre for Engaged Global Higher Education (CEGHE) will conduct research designed to transform our understanding of higher education (HE) in its economic and social contexts. In the public and connected environment in and around HE, CEGHE's research and findings will interest government and policy makers, public agencies, stakeholder organisations in HE, associated sectors (e.g. employers and professions), HEIs, the media and public, international agencies such as the OECD, and many HEI leaders and policy makers-throughout the world.

The main strategy to achieve ongoing impact is CEGHE's structured collaborations with Associated Organisations (AOs). At second stage submission the AOs included GuildHE, Higher Education Academy, Higher Education Policy Institute, Institute for Public Policy Research, National Centre for Universities and Business, National Union of Students, Social Market Foundation, Society for Research into Higher Education, Times Higher, Universities and College Union, Universities UK, Universities UK International Unit, Which?, and WonkHE. If CEGHE is funded more AOs may sign, including public HE agencies. The majority of the CEGHE Advisory Board (chaired by Professor Sir Robert Burgess) will be AOs,

AOs can be engaged in every stage: project design; on project committees; in preparing benchmarks for assessing impact; as participants in some data collection; and providing critical feedback on draft papers and the preparation of materials for different audiences. The release of findings will be double- or multi-badged with AOs and they will share the seminar programme and leadership of CEGHE conferences. In turn they will gain access to CEGHE research findings, influence the applications of the research, and position themselves effectively in subsequent national discussion. By working with CEGHE 'in the kitchen' they will be better placed to use its outputs. The AOs will enhance CEGHE's sensitivity to HEIs, policy makers and interest groups, and trigger many new initiatives in research and applications. They will be an invaluable source of informed comment at every stage of CEGHE's work. In addition, some organisations such as HEA have major data repositories of their own that may be accessible for CEGHE research purposes.

For policy makers and government, CEGHE will offer evidence-based data across a range of key issues in HE, and scope to enter a research based public discussion on an informed basis. Some projects will be of immediate policy interest, e.g. research on the growing private sector in HE, a data-based study of relations between financing and participation, a survey comparing graduates with and without debt, and the comparative international metrics on HE-industry engagement. CEGHE will prepare the ground with policy makers using selective briefings, and release main project findings at public events, engaging government ministers and officials. CEGHE's capacity to impact policy and government through research will often depend on the prior reception of its findings among stakeholders and in the media and public discussion. Media-significant data are more likely to gather public impact and shape policy thought. CEGHE will focus closely on media as this is the best way to reach large numbers of stakeholders. The Times Higher, one of the AOs, will co-sponsor seminars and conferences, and provide a principal medium for publicising outcomes and building stakeholder involvement.

CEGHE will sustain a seminar series in each Research Programme, combined 'Key Debates in HE' seminars and Early Career Researcher seminars, and three conferences, involving stakeholders and policy makers. Events will be held across UK including partner universities of Sheffield and Lancaster. The CEGHE website will be an ESRC research shop front for UK HE; continuously updated, it will be the Centre's point of dissemination and public data exchange, and a broad source of information about UK Higher Education.

Description The majority of CGHE projects are at the final data collection or data analysis stage. Findings up to now have been preliminary in nature but over the next w12 months final findings will emerge. Developments of ongoing significance are already apparent. for example, in CGHE project 1.1, a heuristic has been developed that provides a basis for future empirical research recoding the individual and collective contributions ('impacts') of higher education institutions and systems.

Description The ESRC/HEFCE Centre for Global Higher Education commenced on 12 November 2015, has been funded for a five year period (2015-2020), and has 16 listed ESRC-supported projects at present, none of which have yet finished their work. In addition, it has completed four small-scale projects funded within University College London, and one project for the former Department of BIS (now BEIS). The Centre's full set of eight UK-based postdoc project researchers is now in place. Of the 16 ESRC supported projects, five began early in the Centre's life but the majority did not commence until the second half of 2016, and one (that related to Brexit and Higher Education, separately reported) in 2017. It is too early to report on final project findings from any of the 16 ESRC-supported projects, or on the specific impact of these findings en bloc. However, some findings, and some impacts, are reported in this data collection. The 16 projects have generated a significant number of Working Papers (including preliminary research foundation papers, literature reviews and findings papers), conference papers, CGHE seminar papers and journal papers that have been reported separately to ESRC. One report has been completed on request for the then UK government department BIS, a comparative study of private sector higher education provision in six countries, and a book length monograph concerning European universities and Brexit, with ten national case studies, has been published. The Centre has been highly productive in relation to engagement with the users of research on higher education, including policy makers, facilitated by its regular Policy Briefings and Working Papers, and a growing number of meetings with government departments, HEFCE, Select Committees of the Parliament, and others. CGHE's researchers have a large number of partnerships and collaborative projects between them. In addition to academic publications they have generated numerous commentaries, blogs and other media coverage. Most have been involved directly in policy making processes in higher education, as the evidence in Research Fish attest. CGHE from its beginning has been focused on building impact, which is seen as something that should occur during the life of the research as well as after its completion. CGHE is building impact in two ways. First it has created a consultative structure with policy makers in higher education, public agencies, national education organisations, the higher education institutions, and other potential users of its research. Several stakeholders and research user organisations are members of the CGHE Advisory Board. There are 19 Associated Organisations signed up with CGHE, such as Universities UK, the Alliance and the National Union of Students, with a commitment to assist in future research output dissemination events, for example through jointly badged public events, and joint lobbying of government. Both UUK and the Alliance, especially, have taken an increasingly active role in cooperation with CGHE, for example on the Advisory Committees for CGHE and for the separate project on Brexit and UK higher education; and the NUS President is speaking at the next CGHE annual conference on 11 April. In addition to the 19 Associated Organisations, Cooperation with the Association of Commonwealth Universities, and UNESCO Institute for Educational Planning, has also become significant in the last 12 months, and the CGHE Director and other CGHE researchers have spoken at numerous stakeholder conferences, seminars, workshops and other events in UK and abroad. Each of the 16 CGHE projects has a project committee which plays an advisory role throughout the duration of the research. Each project committee includes at least one person from a policy stakeholder such as HEFCE or a research user organisation such as UUK. Second, CGHE has advanced the public discussion of higher education issues, and public engagement in its research projects - thus preparing the ground for future impact generation around its research findings - in several ways: public conferences (there have been two large and successful open public conferences in the first 16 months), weekly research seminars and occasional seminars and public discussion events, the many contributions of CGHE researchers to public media-based discussion of policy issues in higher education as listed in Research Fish under engagement, including articles, blogs and quotations, the live streaming of public conferences and seminars, public access to events through Youtube and Soundcloud, and an energetic social media presence. For example, the 2017 CGHE conference on 1 March 2017 had 233 livestream users, the hashtag #CGHE2017 was trending on twitter, Times Higher Education carried six separate articles on papers at the conference, and University World News had a special segment devoted to papers from the conference. There were more than 12,000 Twitter entries associated with the joint September 2017 CGHE/Resolution Foundation events on tuition fees in UK higher education. Times Higher has been especially important in covering CGHE events and drawing on the expertise of CGHE researchers for comment.

Description Blended Learning CPD for Vocational Teachers
Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact Reach in terms of enrolments Over 35,000 registrations for the two courses (Blended Learning Essentials,:Getting Started and Embedding Practice), run on FutureLearn Over 54% of participants were from the UK, 56% from the VET sector and almost 60% are teachers or trainers. With further promotion, and the influence of the early participants in these three initial runs, we can expect that in time the courses could reach a high proportion of the intended workforce. Impact on participants Participants enrol on MOOCs such as BLE with a range of personal criteria for success, but completion rates for the courses (17%) have performed well in comparison with similar FutureLearn courses (12%). Participants' attitudes to blended learning were positive from the outset and post-course surveys indicated that they grew even more enthusiastic as a result of the course. Course surveys reported a drop from 49% to 25% of participants who felt nervous about using blended learning, and an increase from 39% to 64% who felt confident about using it appropriately. Participant Engagement and Activity Active engagement achieved across all parts of the course, including over 40,000 comments. The majority of course steps have in excess of an 80% visit to completion conversion rate. Take-up of the accreditation pathways is also positive, 15% opted to buy a statement of participation and the CMALT pilot, run by ALT, was full. Impact on Teaching Practice Pre- and post-course surveys show that: almost 90% of survey respondents note awareness of tools and technologies to support blended learning after the course compared to 45% beforehand. BLE has helped improve participants' confidence and attitudes towards blended learning: only 12% of respondents in the post-course survey now view their 'limited knowledge' of blended learning as a 'serious barrier' to using it, a significant drop from 56% in the pre-course survey. The qualitative analysis of peer assessment, discursive activities and reflective questioning on the platform provides evidence of improving skills and confidence in blended learning. Over 80% of survey respondents felt that the course would improve their career prospects. The interviews with course participants and impact case studies show that BLE helps participants meet their CPD goals. They also demonstrate the positive impact of imparting knowledge acquired on BLE to others within participants' organisations. The interviews also demonstrate the potential for BLE to help teacher trainees improve their practice and meet their professional development goals in blended learning. Further funding The success of these courses led to the team being invited to create two more, outside of the competitive funding process.

Description Higher Education Commission Inquiry into education exports
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Participation in a advisory committee
Impact The Higher Education Commission Inquiry into the export market was co-chaired by Professor Simon Marginson who heads the ESRC/OFSRE Centre for Global Higher Education. The work of the Higher Education Commission Inquiry was extensively publicised and attracted the attention of MPs from all major parties. It was broadly endorsed across the higher education sector. Its policy reasoning was largely consistent with that of the Government's own Migration Advisory Committee though the two sets of recommendations partly diverged. It is likely that future policies will move closer to the report of the Higher Education Commission Inquiry though this has not happened yet.

Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact The Higher Education Commission is based at the Palace of Westminster and includes members from both Houses of Parliament, and education leaders. It is chaired by Lord Norton of Louth. The specific Inquiry into UK Education Exports co-chaired by Lord norton and Simon Marginson. it is inquiring into three related questions: 1. What are the obstacles to growing HE exports? 2. What can be done to improve the value of exports post-Brexit? 3. How can UK advance the other benefits of international education exports? It includes consideration of the effects of Brexit in relation to international education. The Inquiry involves six evidence-giving sessions, a call for public submissions, and preparation of a report. The report will be completed in June/July 2018. To this point the Inquiry has gathered significant evidence through five of its scheduled evidence-giving sessions. This evidence is already being discussed in government circles and a meeting will rake place involving the Minister for Higher Education, Lord Norton and Simon Marginson. The next Research Fish submission will contain fuller details of impact on policy - at this stage the Inquiry is only halfway through.

Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact Bruce Chapman and Lorraine Dearden are two of the world's leading experts on higher education student funding and specifically, income-contingent loans. Bruce Chapman devised the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) in Australia introduced in 1989, which continues to be the main form of student financial support in Australia. Lorraine Dearden is one of the world's leading econometric modellers of student loan effects and also an associate of the Center for Global Higher Education. As a result of their expertise, they have been invited to Colombia on several occasions to advise the government and other stakeholders on reforms of their student funding system and to give keynote presentations about income contingent loans in Bogotá, Cartagena, and Medellín. Testimony in March 2018 from Professor Roberto Zarama, Professor of Universidad de los Andes-Bogota, Academic Director of Ceiba: "Ceiba is a Colombian non for proftt organisation. The associates of Ceiba are the seven most prestigious Colombian universities. These universities produce 80% of the articles written by Colombian researches that are indexed in the Web of Science. Ceiba has been working on the design of innovative financing systems for tertiary education. The results of this research has been used by the Minister of Education for the design of laws. In this work Ceiba has had the fortune of having the guide and advise of Professor Bruce Chapman of the Australian National University and Professor Lorraine Dearden of the University College London. With their invaluable support we advice the Colombian government to introduce a change in the loan system that the country has had since 1952. Due to their support we visited Australia to see the system of Income Contingent Loans. Then we has the experience to see a comparative study of different systems in the world. We also had the opportunity to hear their participation in different workshops in different cities in Colombia. They deliver their presentations in Bogotá, Cartagena, and Medellín. Professor Chapman has visited several times the country and has guided us on how to change the system. The main result of his work in Colombia is the new law that is in process of being approved in parliament. There is only one debate left for the new system to be approved. In Colombia any new law requires four debates. The new system is the funding of tertiary education based on contingent loans. This new system has been approved in the first three debates. Colombia will make a big change due to the support of Professor Chapman."

Impact Professors Bruce Chapman and Lorraine Dearden are some of the world's leading experts in the design, costings and assessment of student loan schemes. Bruce Chapman devised the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) in Australia introduced in 1989, which continues to be the main form of student financial support in Australia. As a result of their expertise, both Professor Chapman and Dearden have been invited to Brazil on several occasions to advise the government and other stakeholders on reforms of their student funding system and to give keynote presentations about income contingent loans. Testimony in March 2018 from Mr. Paulo Nascimento, a research officer at the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA), a think tank maintained by the Brazilian Federal Government: "Professors Bruce Chapman and Lorraine Dearden are highly specialised in the design, costings and assessment of student loan schemes. Their expertise has added substantial contributions to the student loan debate in Brazil, particularly in 2017 and 2018. The Brazilian federal government is reforming FIES, the large loan scheme designed to help low-income students financing tuition fees in private higher education institutions. FIES is a key policy, because three quarters of the enrolments in undergraduate programs are nested in private institutions in Brazil. Additionally, introducing cost sharing in the currently free-of-charge public sector has been a recurrent debate in the country. Through their publications as well as through their direct connections with Brazilian scholars and policymakers, Professors Chapman and Dearden have provided rich advice on converting FIES into an ICL scheme and eventually extending it to public institutions. This connection includes: (i) hosting at ANU in 2017 Mr Paulo Nascimento*, whose PhD research, supervised by Professor Chapman with important contributions from Professor Dearden and Associate Professor Timothy Higgins, is focused on ICL alternatives for a broad reform on higher education student financing in Brazil and is influencing FIES' reform process as well as contributing to the Brazilian debate on free-college provision; (ii) liaising with officials from the Brazilian federal government, who came to Canberra in December 2017 to learn about the HECS/HELP system with the Australian Department of Education and the Australian Taxation Office, discuss FIES' reforms with Professor Chapman, Professor Dearden and Associate Professor Higgins, and participate in an international seminar organised by Professor Chapman; (iii) participating as key facilitators in a workshop in Brazil to discuss FIES' reforms and prospects in higher education student financing with high officials and bureaucrats from the Brazilian federal government."

Impact Testimony in March 2018 from Dr. Shiro Armstrong, Co-Director of the Australia-Japan Research Centre, Editor of the East Asia Forum: "The Japanese government is considering an income contingent loan scheme for financing higher education which came about from a research project over 12 months led by Professors Bruce Chapman and Lorraine Dearden. They led a research team in Japan that carefully considered Japanese labour market issues, the structure of the higher education sector and the institutional and policy context for the possible introduction of an income contingent loan scheme and how one might be designed for Japan. Their joint research with labour and education economists in Japan, anchored by the top economic policy think tank, the Japan Center for Economic Research, has led to workshops, conferences and public forums that has helped inform the debate, socialise the ideas with the academic and policy communities. Their work has produced research that will appear in the Economics of Education Review, opinion pieces in the top financial newspaper and engagement with the minister of education and his ministry. There has been innovation in design and modeling of an ICL due to Japan's labour market characteristics and large number of private universities."

It now consists of a cross-HE and research community stakeholder expert group who advise the UK public research funders and charitable funders like Wellcome Trust on robust and responsible uses of research metrics in funding, assessment and management of research. The FRRM has a particular role with respect to the design of the next Research Excellence Framework, and has been advising HEFCE on how metrics should be used in this context. It also raises awareness and encourages higher education and research institutions to adopt best practices with regard to metrics usage, and a number of UK universities have now done so, developing policies and frameworks based on the Metric Tide, or similar statements like the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment.

Title A framework for analysing private and public goods in higher education 
Description The innovation is a theoretical development in political science, as applied to the study of higher education. It consists of a matrix-based analytical system which combines the two principal theoretical distinctions between public and private goods - the market/non-market distinction, and the non-state/state distinction. By using one distinction on the vertical axis and the other on the horizontal axis, the resulting analytical scheme leads to four distinct political economies. Applied to the study of higher education and research, this enables us to more precisely identify the type of production and of good that is produced, and their limits and possibilities in each case. Particular national systems, institutions, programmes and activities in higher education and/or research can be located in one of more of the quadrants and the balance of activity between quadrants is also explanatory.

Title Community-Based Research: Getting Started 
Description The MOOC is designed for professionals and researchers working in communities in challenging contexts, especially with migrant and refugee populations and their host communities. The course runs for 3 weeks, covering the aims, methods, and practicalities of carrying out community-based research, especially with disadvantaged communities, providing a total of 12-15 hours of study, and is planned to run 2-3 times per year. It is free and open to all on both platforms. The English version makes full use of the social learning functionality in the FutureLearn platform, and the translation into the Arabic version emulates all the same functionality as far as possible within the Edraak version. This is probably the first time a course has run simultaneously in two languages, on two platforms. The course is designed to engage researchers and professionals in a range of discipline areas in exchanging and debating the methods of CBR and the particular sensitivities that must be addressed, especially in communities that are disadvantaged, vulnerable, or living with extreme stress or trauma. The two versions enable us to compare two very different demographic groups - one from the wider global English-speaking digital world, and the other from Arabic speakers in the MENA region. The aim is to research the extent to which the co-design approach to development and adaptation of the course enables these communities of practice to develop into community knowledge-building communities, and what features have most impact on its sustainability in the longer run.

Impact Over 3,000 participants have engaged actively with at least one activity within the course over its first run on the two platforms. Impact will be assessed via platform data, surveys, analysis of contributions in discussions and the assignment, and selected interviews. This is the first instance in the world of a course being developed in collaboration with professionals in two countries, and running simultaneously on two platforms in two languages, with educators working across the two languages, and uniting the two groups in a synchronous webinar as part of the course activity. The evaluation will use platform data and surveys to analyse the comparison between the two groups, and the effectiveness of this model for supporting community based research for professionals in universities, NGOs and international development organisations.

Title Methological improvements in measuring student loan repayment burden 
Description Professors Bruce Chapman (ANU) and Lorraine Dearden (UCL), and Dr Dung Doan (ANU), are members of the CGHE are currently engaged in empirical research to improve the measurement of student loan repayment burden. Over the last 30 years international higher education financing reform has been underway which involves the adoption of income contingent loans (ICL), most often to replace the usual form of higher education financing involving time-based repayment loans (TBRL). The essential difference concerns debt collection: an ICL is repaid if and only when debtor's income in a particular period exceeds a threshold level, but with a TBRL repayment obligations are set over a fixed period of time. ICL reform began in an international context in Australia in 1989, and ICLs have since been adopted in about 10 additional countries. A very significant methodological and empirical focus of what we have been, and are currently, engaged in, relates to calculations associated with potential repayment difficulties for relatively low income student debtors in TBRL systems, such as those in, for example, the US, Canada and Colombia. This relates to the concept of a "repayment burden" (RB), which is measured as the proportion of a debtor's earnings required to repay a student loan. RBs are critical to the policy debate concerning comparisons of ICL and TBRL, since for ICL this proportion is set by law. In Hungary, Australia, England, and New Zealand, for example, the maximum RB is six, eight, nine, and twelve percent of debtor's earnings. However, since TBRLs require fixed repayments over a set period of time, RBs can vary widely among debtors as well as over a debtor's lifetime simply because of earnings variation. There are several reasons that RBs might be critical to the welfare of debtors. One is that high RBs must result in consumption hardship since at some point purchases of goods and services must be decreased or postponed in order to meet debt repayment obligations. A second and related concern is that even if income is high enough to accommodate the loan repayment obligation in a given period the possibility of future consumption hardship given an unanticipated fall in income would give rise to stress and anxiety. Finally, in the event of persistently very high RBs, some debtors will be forced to default on their loans and this results in a loss of credit reputation and thus future access to other commercial borrowings. A burgeoning pool of research, much of it emanating directly or indirectly from the CGHE, has reported RBs under TBRLs in various countries and consistently reported that this traditional form of student loan creates excessive burdens to low-income debtors. Those in the bottom 20 percent of the graduate income distribution need about 40 percent to above 100 percent of their earnings to service their student debts in any given period. This has been found to be the case for example, in the US (Chapman and Dearden, 2017 and Barr et al., 2017), Ireland (Chapman and Doris, 2017), Japan (Dearden and Nagase, 2017) and South Korea (Doan, 2017). Yet some puzzles arise in interpreting the RB experience of many countries' loan systems, one being that since major repayment difficulties seem to be commonplace, why is it that loan defaults appear to be significantly lower than should be expected from our RB calculations? This is our major motivation in exploring the measurement and interpretation of contemporary RB calculations. Conventionally RBs are measured as the proportion of the debtor's income required to meet repayment obligations when they are due. It is simple to calculate, easy to interpret, and free from bias of debtor's subjective perceptions; it is a convenient tool to gauge the extent of potential difficulties associated with the burden to repay student debts. But its use and interpretation imposes some critical restrictive assumptions; it is in the relaxation of these assumptions that we seek to add value to the student loan policy debate. We plan on exploring the limitations of RBs by raising issues related to the calculation of both the repayment obligations and debtor's resources to meet them. There are four basic limitations inherent in the use of (1) as a measure of the difficulty associated with repaying student debt: (i) the measure assumes that there are no within-household transfers of both debt obligations and income, (ii) the measure assumes that labor income is the only resource available for debt repayment, (iii) the measure ignores the fact that part of the debtor's resources must be allocated to living costs, and, (iv) because the measure is a point-in-time calculation, no account is taken of dynamic forces specifically related to changes of income over time. Empirical research has already been conducted by Professors Bruce Chapman (ANU) and Lorraine Dearden (UCL), and Dr Dung Doan (ANU), and will be reported at the 2018 Annual Conference of the Centre for Global Higher Education in London in April 2018.

Impact The research on dynamics estimation of life-time income of graduate debtors by Professor Lorraine Dearden has shown that failing to account for mobility across income group over a graduate's lifetime could significantly underestimate his/her earnings. Preliminary results on new measures of repayment burden by Dr. Dung Doan show that the conventional measure might overestimate the difficulty associated with repayment time-based repayment loan. 
 
Title New measures of student loan repayment burden 
Description Conventionally the difficulty associated with repayment a debt is measured as the proportion of the debtor's income that is required to meet repayment obligation in a certain period of time. It is simple to calculate, easy to interpret, and a convenient tool to gauge the extent of potential difficulties associated with the burden to repay student debts. But its use and interpretation imposes some critical restrictive assumptions; it is in the relaxation of these assumptions that we seek to add value to the student loan policy debate. There are four basic limitations inherent in the measurement of debt obligations and debtor's resources to meet the repayment obligations when they are due. These limitations concern the intra-household allocation of resources and credit obligations, as well as the debtor's consumption needs. I am proposing 4 alternative measures of repayment burden to address these limitations.

Title The Blended Learning Essentials program of MOOCs 
Description The BLE program consists of four courses, covering methods and applications of blended learning, running three times per year, and providing a total of 12 weeks of study in total. The courses are designed to make full use of the social learning functionality in the FutureLearn platform, to engage teaching professionals in exchanging and debating new approaches to the use of technology in different contexts of blended learning. We base the evaluation and research methods for investigation on Wenger et al's (2011) 'value creation methodology'. The platform data is then used to provide evidence of the following cycles of value creation: ? Immediate value: enrolments, pre- and post-course surveys, evidence of engagement and social interaction in the comments and other contributions, post-course interviews; ? Potential value: evaluations of own learning in post-course surveys, evidence of learning in comments, evidence of valuing downloadable learning resources and resource links in comments and post-course surveys; numbers of downloads; peer reviews (reports of learning from doing the assignment and performing a review as well as the assignment itself); ? Applied value: evidence of application from contributions in collaborative activities, e.g. to external tools like Padlet, Tricider, Googledocs; etc; peer review (content of assignment of an applied task and evidence of application of learning through conducting reviews as a principled critique); ? Realised value: surveys sent after MOOC completion; participants' own evaluations of effects on practice in blogs or social media or presentations at practitioner conferences); demonstrating the use of new tools and techniques by monitoring participants' behaviour (for example, if the MOOC was embedded in another course); ? Reframed value: observations of behaviours that build on course activity e.g. participants becoming a voluntary moderator, or a mentor, promoting the MOOCs, skills learnt or online/blended learning within their organisation, or achieving institution-wide policy changes to make the MOOC mandatory. The work has been reported in new publications now under review.

Title Understanding Student Loan Repayment Burdens (Bruce Chapman, Lorraine Dearden and Dung Doan) 
Description 1 Introduction Professors Bruce Chapman (ANU) and Lorraine Dearden (UCL), and Dr Dung Doan (ANU), are members of the CGHE and are in CGHE Project 2.5. . 2 Repayment Burdens: The basic concept Over the last 30 years international higher education financing reform has been underway which involves the adoption of income contingent loans (ICL), most often to replace the usual form of higher education financing involving time-based repayment loans (TBRL). The essential difference concerns debt collection: an ICL is repaid if and only when debtor's income in a particular period exceeds a threshold level, but with a TBRL repayment obligations are set over a fixed period of time.

Yet some puzzles arise in interpreting the RB experience of many countries' loan systems, one being that since major repayment difficulties seem to be commonplace, why is it that loan defaults appear to be significantly lower than should be expected from our RB calculations? This is our major motivation in exploring the measurement and interpretation of contemporary RB calculations. 3 Repayment Burdens: Implicit assumptions underlying contemporary calculations. Conventionally RBs are measured as: L_it/Y_it (1) where L_it is the required repayment of student loan in period t for debtor i, and Y_it is debtor i's own labour income in period t. It is simple to calculate, easy to interpret, and free from bias of debtor's subjective perceptions; it is a convenient tool to gauge the extent of potential difficulties associated with the burden to repay student debts. But its use and interpretation imposes some critical restrictive assumptions; it is in the relaxation of these assumptions that we seek to add value to the student loan policy debate. We plan on exploring the limitations of RBs by raising issues related to both the numerator and denominator of equation (1). There are four basic limitations inherent in the use of (1) as a measure of the difficulty associated with repaying student debt: (i) the measure assumes that there are no within-household transfers of both debt obligations and income, (ii) the measure assumes that labor income is the only resource available for debt repayment, (iii) the measure ignores the fact that part of the debtor's resources must be allocated to living costs, and, (iv) because the measure is a point-in-time calculation, no account is taken of dynamic forces specifically related to changes of income over time. The issues to be examined relate to: The relevance of per capita (or adult equivalent scale) and total household repayment burden to account for the intra-household allocation of resources and debt obligations within the household - The inclusion of non-labour sources of income - The inclusion of consumption expenditure to maintain debtor's and their dependent's living; and - Taking account of, and measuring, dynamic lifetime income processes.

Description The secondary data collection I am pursuing is a continuation of a project I was taking part in my previous academic affiliation. It is based on Web of Science data about scientific output by Country and cross-national collaborations. I am going to collect data from 1995 until 2015, with particular reference to European countries. Collection of funding agency is also foreseen to be collected, especially those related to the European Union. The purpose of the study is to plot the networks of collaborations between countries, especially at European level, and how they have changes over time. The possible influence of EU funding agencies will be tested to understand if and how the networks of collaborations have been changed due to specific schemes that substantially become relevant since 2007 onwards. Possibly, also UK based funding agencies will be considered. The specific database from which data will be collected is "InCite", which allows to download 50.000 record per time. Data are individual scientific articles with authors included. The names of the authors will be simply delated, making the dataset completely anonymous.

Description Collaborative research with academics at Vanderbilt University, USA 
Organisation Vanderbilt University
Department Peabody College of Education and Human Development
PI Contribution Callender formed the collaboration with 2 academics from the University of Vanderbilt as a direct result of giving a paper, at the University of Pennsylvania, about the findings of our study on student debt. The US colleagues have used the same measures of debt aversion, developed by Callender in 2002, and used in the Callender and Mason 2015 study on debt in their US study of loan debt aversion among young people. We are currently in the process of writing a joint paper exploring attitudes towards debt and intentions to participate in HE among a broadly similar group of English and US young people in school - using the same measures of debt aversion. We have provided our US colleagues with our data from the English 2015 survey of potential HE students which they have merged their data from a similar US survey so that we can do this comparative US and English analysis. Thus we have created a unique English/US dataset. Callender is providing her expertise on student funding in England in the analysis and write up of the paper.
Collaborator Contribution The researchers at the University of Vanderbilt are providing us access to their data arising from their survey of young people for this comparative work. In addition, they are undertaking all the analysis of the merged English/US dataset, including modelling at no cost to us. Furthermore they will provide expertise on the US system of student funding in the analysis and write up of the paper.
Impact The US colleagues are both economists, while Callender is a social policy analyst.

Description The decline in entrants to part-time undergraduate study in England 
Organisation Higher Education Funding Council for England
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution This project is coordinated by Centre researcher Claire Callender. Professor Callender is working with John Thompson who used to work for HEFCE to examine the decline in entrants to part-time undergraduate study in England using HESA data provided by HEFCE. The aim of this research is: • to better understand the decline in entrants to part-time undergraduate study; • to assess to what extent it reflects a real reduction in the number of entrants, and • to identify the most likely causes of this reduction. This should enable us to assess the likely impact of future changes in policy, such as the increase in the number of subjects which will be exempt from equivalent or lower qualifications (ELQ) restrictions on student loans from 2017-18. It should also provide a foundation to develop other policies to halt or reverse the decline in part-time study. The study will also assess the contribution of part-time provision to reducing the discrepancies in the take-up of higher education between advantaged and disadvantaged social groups; that is to 'widening participation' policy. Claire Callender submitted the proposal to the Sutton Trust and is involved in all aspects of this study. She is working collaboratively with John Thompson in terms of defining the scope of the study and the analysis. She will play a central role in writing up, presenting and disseminating the findings of the research.

Results and Impact This study pushes the boundaries on how researchers model the effects of endogenous treatments on subsequent student outcomes. Many such studies only model binary treatments (e.g., took Algebra II in high school or not) and the effect of that treatment on subsequent educational outcomes. This paper details how to model multivalued treatments (e.g., took Remedial Math, Algebra II, Calculus Iin high school) and multinomial outcomes (e.g., No College Attendance, Attend a Two-Year, Attend a Four-Year).
