Strategies for the Internationalisation of Higher Education. A Comparative Study of Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States of America.
de Wit, Hans, Ed.
This document reports on a project focusing on the development of strategies by institutions of higher education for greater internationalization and reformulation of the missions of teaching, research and service. It summarizes the conceptual and regional aspects of strategies of internationalization resulting from workshops and discussions held at a 1994 seminar. The five chapters are: (1) "Strategies for Internationalisation of Higher Education: Historical and Conceptual Perspectives" (Jane Knight and Hans de Wit) which focuses on experiences in the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia; (2) "The Institutional Policy Contexts for International Higher Education in the United States of America" (Burkart Holzner and Davydd Greenwood) which considers effects of external and internal factors on the strategies of American institutions of higher education toward internationalization; (3) "Internationalisation of Higher Education in Europe" (Hans de Wit and Hilary Callan) which examines ways in which European institutions are accommodating the growing demand for a greater international view; (4) "A National Study on Internationalisation at Canadian Universities" (Jane Knight) which reports on a 1993 survey of 89 Canadian institutions concerning their efforts toward greater internationalization; and (5) "Internationalisation of Higher Education in Australia" (Kenneth J. Back and Dorothy M. Davis) which summarizes Australian efforts in terms of activities which involve students, the academic staff, institutions of higher education, and national organizations or governmental units. An appendix gives a breakdown of the structure of international offices on Australian university campuses as of June 1995. An appendix provides a summary of the seminar on "Institutional Strategies for Internationalization of Higher Education." Biographical sketches of the authors are included. (Individual chapters contain references.) (CK)
