Hong Kong: teaching trip, July 2011.

Higher Education in the 21st century: I’m just back from a week in Hong Kong, teaching on the MSc Marketing with International Festival and Event Management that Edinburgh Napier runs over there with HKU SPACE. It was a great week, meeting lots of new people and having the chance to discuss events, festivals and the development of the industry in different parts of the world.

I would love to write about it in depth, but I suspect these pictures might do a better job: a mixture of classrooms, hotel rooftop views and evidence from a data-gathering trip to a festival. I now have data relating to the efficient employment of a yard of ale, for example. Such rigorous research didn’t do much for my attempts to get over the jet lag, but neither did the rolling revelations of ‘phone hacking’ that finally hit home for News International in London – I was never going to sleep through that as it all kicked off.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before I’m out there again.

    David – it was good to meet you and thanks for the 5 intensive days of classes … get in touch when you’re next in town and a gathering can be sorted as I’m sure there are some things of HK that you might have missed.

    Thanks Mimi! I hope the rest of the module goes well – you’re all welcome to keep in touch, although it’s best to speak to Cardi first.Further trips to HK are very possible and I will let you know.
