The internationalisation of higher education has traditionally been dominated by the English-speaking world and western Europe. This session aims to give voice to emerging perspectives as an increasing range of countries engage in internationalisation processes. Do other regions have a non-traditional conceptualization of internationalisation or are they merely copying what has gone before? Are the imperatives and drivers the same or different? Are there alternative conceptions of collaboration, partnership and of mobility? What is understood by an internationalised curriculum? This interactive session will explore these and other questions with the help of leading regional experts.
This session is curated by Professor Elspeth Jones, Emerita Professor of the Internationalisation of HE, Leeds Beckett University, UK as part of our 2015 guest curated session series.
