International Education: Problems and Prospects. Keynote Addresses from the Horace Mann Lecture Series and the Paul Masoner International Lecture Series, 1972-1978.
The topic of international education and higher education is discussed from an Asian viewpoint. Expectations of higher education, international education in a changing world, and international cooperation in higher education are considered. The expansion of universities in industrialized and in developing countries is noted, and information is presented on the growth of universities in Southeast Asia. Although problems have been encountered in most countries, international education has become an important component of Southeast Asian universities. The creation of the United Nations organization at the end of the Second World War brought in a new era in international education. Among the reasons contributing to the broadening of the scope of international education over recent years are the facts that: (1) internationalism has become a way of life; (2) countries in the modern world have become more interdependent than ever before; (3) the globe has become smaller with the advance of science and technology; and (4) communication technology has made advances. Along with numerous intergovernmental and private organizations, higher education has taken the lead in establishing the various channels of cooperation among scholars in different parts of the world. The promotion of world peace and progress depends, among other factors, on international education. (SW)
