Education for International Competence in Pennsylvania.
Dinniman, Andrew, Ed.; Holzner, Burkart, Ed.
This book discusses international education and the emergence of Pennsylvania's Partnership for International Competence (PPIC), a partnership that evolved to guarantee that Pennsylvania remains a major actor in the world economy. Individuals from the corporate, labor, educational, and government sectors contributed articles to the areas of discussion. Section 1 includes 10 articles on the various perspectives of these different sectors towards developing international competencies for Pennsylvania, and how that development will impact upon Pennsylvania education, trade, private industry, global views, and policy planning. Section 2 is a short history of the Pennsylvania Council for International Education, founded in 1971, and devoted to the development of international education through the public and private educational structure in Pennsylvania. Section 3 discusses the dimensions of the task of developing international competence. Section 4 includes six views representing the various sectors that make up the PPIC, and what each sector can contribute to that partnership. Section 5 includes 30 articles discussing several initiatives and programs that will contribute to the development of international competency in the areas of geography and life sciences, languages, history, basic education, higher education, basic/higher education collaborations, education/business networking, and education and communication/technology. A blueprint for the development of an internationally competent Pennsylvania and a list of 12 additional resources conclude this collection. (PPB)
