Workshop on the Management of International Co-operation in Universities (Penang, Malaysia, May 9-10, 1997).
Commonwealth Secretariat, London (England).
International cooperation and student exchange were considered at this 1997 workshop attended by representatives of 27 universities from 15 British Commonwealth countries. The majority of workshops participants were administrators involved in international programs. A keynote address discussed the Commonwealth Universities Study Abroad Consortium in a theoretical context against a background of European experience of internationalization. An agenda was presented for universities contemplating extending their international activities, with particular reference to developing countries. Small group sessions considered possible objectives of international programs, concerns of academic staff if they became involved in international activities, the recruitment of students from abroad as well as sending students to study at a foreign university, financing international programs, and program administration. The workshop also addressed the experience of the University Sains Malaysia (USM), and the functioning of the International Offices at Edith Cowan University (Australia) and the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada). Appendices provide: a list of workshop participants; the text of the keynote address (Hilary Callan); and the paper "Managing International Student Study Abroad Scheme: USM's Experience" (Puan Sri Fauziah Shahrom).(SW)
