Shifting Patterns of International Higher Education: Ebb and Flow or Sea Change?
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v45 n5 p28-35 2013
In November 2012, the US Department of Education published its first-ever "fully articulated international strategy." Its two strategic goals are to strengthen US education and advance the international priorities of the US through increasing the global competencies of students, learning from other countries, and engaging in education diplomacy (2012, p. 4). What has prompted the US to launch a new international strategy, and how does it compare with developments in other countries? What trends are we seeing in international higher education, and do they signal evolutionary or more radical changes ahead? This article will take a look at national-level internationalization strategies beyond the US and consider their alignment (or not) with institutional initiatives. Four dimensions of internationalization will be highlighted to identify key trends.
