Connectivity for Whom and for What? A Normative Dimension of Education Hub
Lo, William Yat Wai; Ng, Felix Sai Kit
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v38 n3 p354-368 2016
This argument in this study is that the descriptive dimension of the concept of education hub, which focuses on the importance of connectivity in enhancing the competiveness of a place, is inadequate in addressing the educational values in globalising higher education. Therefore, it attempts to initiate a normative dimension of education hub through an empirical account of the experience of a group of Myanmar university students in Hong Kong and an engagement with the ideas of cosmopolitanisation and the notion of higher education as a "transnational" human right. By considering these stories from Myanmar, this study reveals the adoption of the internationalisation of higher education in promoting transnational justice and development.
