Team members present papers at the 2014 Annual CIES Conference

cies2014logo In March, five of our team members presented at the 58th annual Comparative and International Education Society Conference that took place in Toronto. Andrew Kretz, Kristjan Sigurdson and Creso Sá presented findings on a study that explores how technology transfer indicators have informed science policy-making in Canada and the European Union. In another session, Darren Deering and Cynthia Field presented a paper entitled University Rankings: Encouraging Academic Drift through Isomorphic Processes, which discusses the impact of the pressures of rankings and the quest for prestige on higher education institutions.

The annual CIES conference is organized by the Comparative and International Education Society in order to promote scholarly research and academic discussions to explore issues in education in a comparative perspective.
