Dr Yeralan was invited to participate on the panel on "Managing Higher Education" to be held at Alanya HEP University on May 7, 2015. His exploratory speech will focus on the assessment of research and teaching performance. Specifically, Dr Yeralan will focus on if and how such assessments may be justified or even conducted, given the general consensus that commonly performed quantification practices have little scientific basis. This, he will argue, brings more opportunities than challenges to the future of academic administration.
