Halamandaris, P. G., Ed.; Serfaty, Meir, Ed.
This proceedings provides summaries of the group discussions and presentations of a conference/workshop convened in March 1992 to share information concerning the future planning of educational partnerships between developing countries and Canada's small universities. The approaches examined at the conference are characterized by more sensitivity and respect for local conditions, cultures and policies, expressed through a sharing of power and decision making in the planning, execution, and evaluation of projects. The workshops and presentations presented point to the need for international projects to be driven by the needs of the countries hosting them. In addition, workshops examined international projects from the perspective of the sponsoring agencies involved, the initiation and maintenance of these projects, and the experiences of international students from the perspective of the student liaison officers and advisors. The final session considered the future and makes some projections for small universities and international education. The appendix contains a list of the conference participants and the conference agenda. (GLR)
