2nd QS Summer School Summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Bringing together 85 participants from 45 institutions of 19 countries, the Summit offered a highly interactive format, including the Summit's signature “Elevator Pitch” (an opportunity to promote your summer program in 90 seconds) and the “Round Robin Chat Groups”, which crowd-source and share knowledge and experience from all participants. With colleagues from other countries Ms. Oksana Chernenko took part in panel discussion on Building World Class Summer Schools.
The formal part of the Summit was focused on the importance of maintaining academic quality control, offering a unique student experience and future trends for Summer Schools. One of the organizers of the Summit was University of Malaya, or UM, Malaysia's oldest university.
The Summit gave a good chance to broaden and develop partnership contacts, e.g. with Universities of Utrecht and Radboud (the Netherlands), with universities of Hong Kong and others.
The Third QS Summer School Summit is already being prepared to be held in May 2016. Oksana Chernenko was honored to become a Member of the Executive Committee, so we hope to contribute to the forthcoming event.
