Representations of Internationalisation in Statistics Education
Smith, Narelle; Reid, Anna; Petocz, Peter
Journal of Statistics Education, v17 n1 Mar 2009
Internationalisation is an important but contentious issue in higher education. For some it means the facilitation of student mobility and an important source of funding for universities, while for others it forms a philosophy of teaching and student engagement, highlighting issues of global inequality. In this study, the papers from a recent statistics education conference, the 7th International Conference on Teaching Statistics, are subjected to a critical discourse analysis against a theoretical frame derived from research describing different ways of understanding and working with internationalisation. The analysis demonstrates how a specific discipline-based community--the statistics education community--involves itself with issues of internationalisation.
