Internationalization of Research
Antelo, Absael
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v2 n1 Spr 2012
Strategies used by institutions of higher learning for the internationalization of research represent a new reality in their operations. Universities actually use a variety of strategies to achieve some degrees of campus internationalization and their activities are limited to exchanges of students, faculty, and academic staff. Few institutions include in their academic missions indications about strategies for internationalization of research. There are also barriers precluding these activities, mainly related to conceptual, cultural, and curriculum approaches that faculty and university leadership holds in their own institutions. Two cases for the internationalization of research were discussed and analyzed. In addition, a model was developed in an effort to facilitate the internationalization of research. A process was outlined and the steps to follow were discussed. The literature related to the internationalization of research activities is limited and more research is needed in this area.
