The AppliedHE Xchange webinars are an interactive online event format that focuses on a specific higher education topic. Recent webinars have focused on topics such as best practices in higher education for dealing with COVID-19, the digitization of skills based higher education and the role and value-added of university consortia.

Country-specific Xchange events and webinars have also been held as a way to launch the AppliedHE brand and services in specific markets.

Since COVID-19 virtual events have been organized for the Central Asian Region & Russia and events in Taiwan, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and China are currently being planned.

Co-hosting an AppliedHE Xchange webinar allows an institution to bring in experts from AppliedHE about higher education evaluation, quality improvement, branding and internationalization to their domestic audience and also provide them with an opportunity to ask questions and interact. One or two guest speakers from the host country or external experts can be added to the program to provide a comprehensive overview of current and emerging local and global higher education trends.

Presentation 1: AppliedHE, The New Kid on the Block

An introduction to the AppliedHE (“Applied Higher Education”) as a concept, organization and our approach to higher education quality improvement and promotion.

AppliedHE bridges the gap between universities, students and employers by delivering innovative higher education evaluation, branding and networking solutions. The relevance of the AppliedHE concept and services to global university rankings, higher education internationalization, quality improvement, industry collaboration and student recruitment are emphasized.

Presentation 2: AppliedHE Ratings: JOB-Ready & EMI-Ready Ratings

An introduction to the AppliedHE™ JOB-Ready and EMI-Ready Rating systems. JOB-Ready is an all-round international evaluation system based on stakeholder opinions (employers, alumni, students, faculty and peer faculty) that measures the quality of an institution against criteria that are most relevant to students, employers, government and other social actors.

EMI-Ready evaluates the prevalence, quality and support system of English-taught programs in non-English speaking countries, enabling institutions to benchmark themselves internationally and better market themselves to international students.

Presentation 3: AppliedHE Rankometer: Pre-Launch Preview Asia-Pacific

The AppliedHE Rankometer is a composite ranking consisting of the world’s most influential university rankings. Because each ranking has its own methodological biases, combining multiple rankings into a single measure provides the definitive rank of a university.

The presentation focuses on the Rankometer and constituent ranks within the Asia-Pacific region, the differences between them and insight into the biases of each constituent ranking.
