SHARE-BINUS National Seminar 2022

The SHARE-BINUS National Seminar: Enhancing Graduate Employability in ASEAN through Internationalisation of Higher Education on 22 November 2022 explores current Higher Education (HE) developments and their relation to Qualifications Frameworks (QF) / Quality Assurance (QA) by engaging national education stakeholders of ASEAN Member States and in Europe through dialogue.  

One of the ways students acquire skills and competencies for personal and professional development is through mobility programs, the majority of which came to a halt during the pandemic. As the world starts to recover and learns to live side-by-side with COVID-19, mobility has become possible, albeit in varying forms.

Objectives of the Seminar

  • Enhance the resilience of the higher education system in delivering skills-based outcomes; 
  • Explore post-pandemic opportunities in international higher education cooperation between Europe and Southeast Asia;  
  • Create industry-university linkages and synergies to enhance graduate employability;  
  • Identify tools and approaches to assess the impact of mobility programs on the employability of graduates;  
  • Discuss opportunities associated with new teaching and learning methods (digital learning, blended learning formats, etc.); and 
  • Facilitate sharing perspectives and good practices between Indonesian stakeholders and ASEAN and European peers on general higher education-related matters of interest. 

Format of the Seminar 
This seminar will take place on-site at Le Meridien Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia. Parts of the seminar will be live-streamed via YouTube / Zoom. Virtual participants will only be able to watch the seminar but not participate in question & answer sessions.
