RUSC: Call for articles open for the next monographic issue on Globalisation and Internationalisation of Higher Education
Call for Papers Deadline:
Over the past 25 years, in response to the increasing globalisation of our economies and societies, the international dimension of higher education has become more central on the agenda of national governments, institutions of higher education and their representative bodies, student organisations, and accreditation agencies. Internationalisation over these years has moved from a reactive to a pro-active strategic issue, from added value to mainstream, and has also seen its focus, scope and content evolve substantially. Increasing competition in higher education and the commercialisation and cross-border delivery of higher education have challenged the value traditionally attached to cooperation: exchanges and partnerships. The global knowledge economy has forced higher education to react but has also stimulated it to become an important actor and competitor. This issue will look at different ways higher education responds to the challenges of globalisation and how it impacts its international dimension.
We are interested in receiving research articles on this topic by authors from all educational sectors and around the world. The specific thematic areas of the monographic issue are as follows:
• Changing perspectives on internationalisation in the global knowledge economy
• Regionalisation, globalisation and internationalisation (Bologna Process)
• Cross-border education (off-shore programmes, student mobility, etc.)
• Internationalisation at home: internationalisation of the curriculum, international and intercultural competencies
