The keynotes in The Higher Education Conference 2016 are arranged and sponsored by national associations for higher education, hence showing a diversity in topics and national perspectives. Each keynote provides attention to the interrelatedness of research into the micro-, meso, and macro aspects (so learning, teaching and organising) of higher education, and the importance of this triple perspective. This triple focus is then related to a key topic related to the specialism of the keynote speaker.
