Re-Imagining Higher Education in a Global Context

In recent years, the “comprehensive internationalization” of higher education institutions has been the primary focus of leaders in international higher education. By integrating an international dimension into teaching, research, and outreach, we have sought to transform higher education institutions into global institutions. We are now reaching a new era in this process where many institutions have embraced internationalization. At the same time, there are still many institutions where rhetoric regarding a global dimension still outweighs vision, strategy, and action. Further, internationalization as we know it today has inherent implications which are not always viewed as positive including brain drain, academic imperialism, and the commodification of higher education. Additionally, the current process of “comprehensive internationalization” no longer represents the full scope and development of international initiatives today that are transforming our institutions and the world. Therefore, a more effective approach may be to shift the focus from “internationalizing” higher education as a process applied to institutions to instead re-imagining and re-visioning higher education in a globalized world. Every single person and location today is impacted by actions of those in other parts of the world. Higher education plays a critical role in understanding and shaping those interactions and events.

This shift in viewing higher education as adapting to a global setting changes the role of senior international officers who no longer apply a process but lead approaches at their institutions to meet the needs and interests of globally mobile students and faculty more broadly, as well as to advance their institutions’ missions in a global context. This also entails responding to the needs of the world at large such as through development, capacity building and addressing collectively the pressing issues of the 21st century including poverty, health, and a sustainable environment. Please join us for the 2013 AIEA Annual Conference in New Orleans to re-imagine higher education in a global context, moving beyond internationalization as an institutional process to adapting higher education to a globalized world.

Financial Support
Conference presenters will not receive any financial recompense for their participation. Moreover, travel costs, accommodation and registration fees should be paid for by the conference presenters.
Funding

Conference participants are recommended to request additional funding from the institution they represent, as well as through regional or state organizations.

Re-Imagining Higher Education in a Global Context

We are now reaching a new era in this process where many institutions have embraced internationalization.

This also entails responding to the needs of the world at large such as through development, capacity building and addressing collectively the pressing issues of the 21st century including poverty, health, and a sustainable environment. Please join us for the 2013 AIEA Annual Conference in New Orleans to re-imagine higher education in a global context, moving beyond internationalization as an institutional process to adapting higher education to a globalized world.

Guidelines for Submitting a Proposal
  • Indicate the type of session format for which you are submitting a proposal:
    1. a panel discussion or
    2. a facilitated roundtable discussion
  • Proposals must demonstrate that at least 30 minutes are incorporated for discussion and interaction. Panels should not be “talking heads” but rather allow sufficient time for adequate discussion and exchange between all in attendance.
  • We will give preference to sessions that include multiple institutions and diverse perspectives. Student perspectives are most welcome.
  • Regional diversity, including perspectives from institutions and presenters located outside of the United States, will be favored.
  • The purpose of the conference is to help leaders at institutions (and in the world of international education at large) carry out their responsibilities and develop new ideas. Sponsorship opportunities exist for those with services, programs or products available on the market to assist in this effort, but these services and products are not acceptable topics for sessions. We will not accept proposals that promote a product, program, university, or service. Sessions that focus on one institution will not be accepted.
  • Sessions should focus on lessons learned, challenges and issues encountered and how those were addressed. Sessions should not be a “show and tell” of a university or a program. Presenters are requested to keep details of a specific university to a minimum.
Required Information for the Proposal

A. Identification and biography

  • Session Title, Abstract and Full Description (see note below) **
  • Name, Contact Details, and Biography of Chairperson
  • Names, Contact Details, and Biographies of all proposed speakers (see note below) **
  • Conference subtheme category
  • Audio-visual needs
  • URL where handouts will be posted (all chairs are responsible for posting session handouts to their own website; AIEA will publicize the website URL)

B. Full Session Description
(Detailed description of your proposed session – maximum 500 words)

Include a content outline describing the major theme(s), challenges, lessons learned, successes and failures, application possibilities for other institutions, etc. that will be addressed in this session. In addition, please include the goals of the session and the methodologies to be used. Remember to include a minimum of 30 minutes for discussion in the panel discussion format session. If there is more than one presenter, explain what each presenter will discuss. Please be as complete as possible and remember that the content needs to have wide applicability, comparative perspectives and an analysis of "lessons learned" useful to higher education leaders. Facilitated Roundtable sessions must describe the topic in detail, the questions posed to participants, and desired outcomes. For the Facilitated Roundtable sessions, explain what each presenter will discuss, how the discussion will be moderated, expected outcomes and how outcomes will be collected and distributed.

C. Additional Comments

The session chair will serve as the key contact on the session and is responsible for communicating all session information and details with presenters.

** Important Information for Session Proposers
  • Should the proposal be selected, the abstract and bios submitted will be printed in the conference program exactly as submitted
  • Please pay very careful attention to the exact format, language and word limitation required: no more than 75 words for the abstract and for the bio.
  • Biographies may include presenters’ positions and major work accomplishments relevant to the presenter’s session topic.
  • The biography should be written in the third person, and consist of full sentences. Please observe the sample bio format provided in the online submission form.
  • Bios that do not conform to the sample format will not be included in the conference program
  • Proposals must be complete at time of submission – it is not sufficient to note “information to be added later.” Incomplete proposals will not be considered in the review process.
  • Proposals submitted without an abstract, full description, or complete bio information on all presenters listed will not be considered.

How to Submit an Electronic Proposal

Be sure to save a copy of the proposal before submitting it to AIEA!

Online proposal fields must be complete in order to continue with the proposal submission. If you are unable to continue with the submission, it may be that you did not provide the information required. You will know your submission was successful when you receive an electronic acknowledgement. If this acknowledgement is not received, please submit your proposal again.

If a hard copy of the proposal is absolutely necessary for completion or if technical difficulties are encountered, please email aiea@duke.edu for guidance.

Selection Criteria

Proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Advisory Committee and evaluated with the following criteria foremost:

  • Connection/Applicability to the Conference themes
  • Originality and quality of the proposed session
  • Relevance to both U.S. and international audiences
  • Presence of Multiple Perspectives
  • Diversity of Presenters (i.e., regional, institutional)
  • Realistic allocation of time, including for discussion
  • Substantive issues discussed during the session (note again that sessions should not promote marketed products, programs, universities or services in any way)

Session proposals should NOT be a “show and tell” but rather a focus on challenges, trends, and lessons learned, with ample time for discussion.

The Conference Planning Committee will have to choose among many proposals, some of which may be similar, and will seek balance among topics and areas of importance to the membership. Proposals of equal merit cannot in all instances be selected when the result would be an imbalance in the conference’s overall coverage of topics, audiences, and regions.

ACE 2013 Announcement

Aligning International Strategy and Institutional Goals
Saturday, February 16
New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans
9:00 am - 5:30 pm
Registration fee: $250

Register here: https://www2.acenet.edu/registration/index.cfm?CONFERENCE_ID=COLL0216

The American Council on Education (ACE) and Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) announce the 13th meeting of the Internationalization Collaborative, a network of campus leaders that convenes annually to address critical issues in campus internationalization.

The program is designed for campus leaders with responsibility for internationalization, including senior international officers, provosts, deans, department chairs, and program directors. A team of campus leaders from the same institution is ideal.

The 2013 Collaborative will focus on building strong connections between international strategy and broad institutional goals. The topic will be framed by a panel of college presidents who will describe how they have developed institutional goals on their campuses.

Participants will have opportunities to discuss this topic through plenary sessions, small group discussion, and on-line dialogue before and after the meeting.

Participants will leave the Collaborative with:
  • An understanding of how senior campus leaders develop institutional goals
  • Advice on developing the knowledge and perspective necessary to contribute to the strategic planning process
  • Actionable ideas for aligning the international agenda with the broader goals of the institution

The Collaborative is part of a strategic partnership between ACE and AIEA. The two organizations share the goal of developing strong campus leaders who can guide their institutions through the challenges of internationalization. The Collaborative is designed to complement the sessions of the AIEA Annual Conference by giving its participants the opportunity to delve deeply into a timely, critical issue.

The registration fee for the ACE / AIEA Internationalization Collaborative is $250. On-line registration is only available through the ACE website.

The fee only covers participation in the Collaborative, and you must register separately for any other events related to the AIEA annual conferenc. If you have any questions about the program, contact Katie Weigel at kweigel@acenet.edu.

AIEA/British Council Workshop:
Global Responsibility in International Higher Education

Members $125; Non-members $300 (Early Bird Registration: by Dec. 14)
Members $175; Non-members $350 (Regular Registration: Dec. 15-Jan. 25)
Members $225; Non-members $400 (Late Registration: from Jan. 26)

As institutions of higher education around the world strengthen their internationalization strategies, the impact of those actions has global implications. This workshop will explore two elements of internationalization with clear global consequences - foreign student recruitment and enrollment and trans-national education. These activities include a myriad of global approaches and are often initiated in developed countries and take place in the developing world. While there is no doubt that cross-border educational opportunities are helping developing countries with unmet skill agendas, knowledge economy growth and economic prosperity, what is the responsibility of higher education institutions in operating on a global scale?

What are the responsibilities of institutions looking increasingly to overseas markets for student recruitment? What elements need to be considered as institutions grow their global brand by establishing off shore campuses and joint/dual degree programs in other parts of the world? What are the academic, social, economic and diplomatic objectives and practices that need to be considered? What should colleges and universities do to avoid or mitigate any unintended adverse consequences of internationalization? These are some of the major questions around the global responsibility of international higher education that will be discussed in this workshop.

Workshop learning outcomes:
  • Assessment of institutional and national case studies illustrating good practice in higher education global responsibility, critiquing impact and developing learning
  • Examining what it means in practice to grow Global Citizens and the role of higher education institutions
  • Evaluate new approaches to sharing Global Responsibility in higher education that are sustainable and equitable

Developing Strategic Sino-American Institutional Partnerships for Student Mobility

Members $125; Non-members $300 (Early Bird Registration: by Dec. 14)

Few countries have seen such rapid economic and educational change in so short a time period as China. China has been the top place of origin sending students to the United States since 2010. The number of Americans studying abroad in China increased by over 500% in the past ten years, making China one of the top 10 study abroad destination countries for U.S. students. President Obama’s 100,000 Strong Initiative in 2010 seeks to dramatically increasing the number of American students studying in China. Public and private institutions have in many cases undertaken major initiatives to meet the emerging demand for student mobility on a larger scale.

The past decade has witnessed various institutional practices in expanding student mobility, but has also seen the rigorous challenge and rising risks. The session will introduce the overall context of China’s international higher education, review some of the practices in institutional cooperation and explore the possibility of finding productive and quality assured solutions to overcome the obstacles. It will help the US institutions learn and understand the China’s international higher education, identify and select appropriate partner institutions, create and manage legal and quality programs and to establish a sustainable strategic international partnership with Chinese institutions.

The workshop is designed for leaders in US institutions interested in developing linkages with Chinese institutions. Attendees are invited to participate by bringing problems, lessons learned, and successful practice of their institutions.

AIEA/EAIE Workshop:
The New "Erasmus for All Program and its Impact on US-European Cooperation

Members $125; Non-members $300 (Early Bird Registration: by Dec. 14)
Members $175; Non-members $350 (Regular Registration: Dec. 15-Jan. 25)
Members $225; Non-members $400 (Late Registration: from Jan. 26)

Target Audience: Non Europeans
Erasmus for All is the new €19 billion program of the European Union for education, training, youth and sport. It will start in 2014 and will significantly increase the funds allocated for the development of knowledge and skills. In the first part of the workshop we will discuss the impact and possibilities for cooperation with the USA.

The first part of the workshop will focus on the program itself. The Erasmus for All program will support three main types of actions:

  • Learning opportunities for individuals, both within the EU and beyond, including: study and training, traineeships, teaching and professional development and non-formal youth activities such as volunteering. Erasmus for All will provide opportunities for learning abroad for up to 5 million people across all education and training sectors. Europeans will have the option to study, train or teach at higher education institutions anywhere in the world, and non-European students and staff will have more opportunities to study, teach and learn in Europe. Extending the program beyond the EU's borders will increase the attractiveness of European higher education and at the same time support the development of higher education elsewhere in the world.
  • Institutional cooperation between educational institutions, youth organizations, businesses, local and regional authorities and NGOs, to encourage the development and implementation of innovative practices in education, training and youth activities, and to promote employability, creativity and entrepreneurship.
  • Support for policy reform in Member States and cooperation with non-EU countries, with a focus on strengthening the evidence-base for policymaking and exchange of good practices. Support will include the implementation of EU transparency tools, cross-country studies and support for specific policy agendas such as the Bologna (higher education) and Copenhagen (vocational education and training) processes.

The second part of the workshop will be devoted on response from European institutions:

  • What is the response from European institutions
  • How do they see new possibilities for working with other regions than Europe and the USA more specifically

And response from the USA:

  • What is the impact in the USA of the ERASMUS for All program
  • What possibilities are there for institutions for the USA to participate in the program
  • How does FIPSE accommodate the cooperation within the program
Learning outcome

Participants will:

  • Learn the objectives of the new program ERASMUS for All
  • Understand and identify the impact and possibilities of the program for cooperation between Europe and the USA

Planning Towards Comprehensive Internationalization:
Pathways for Small, Undergraduate Institutions

Members $125; Non-members $300 (Early Bird Registration: by Dec. 14)
Members $175; Non-members $350 (Regular Registration: Dec. 15-Jan. 25)
Members $225; Non-members $400 (Late Registration: from Jan. 26)

This half-day workshop is intended to help the SIO working at a small, undergraduate institution to strategize ways to move the institution beyond internationalization as synonymous with study abroad and international student enrollments to a more comprehensive approach. Such institutions often lack the research agendas that drive internationalization at larger institutions with graduate programs and may also have limited resources in terms of staffing and finances. Yet their smaller scale, focus on teaching, and philosophy of building intensive communities of learning provide other, very distinctive assets for internationalization.

Presenters with experience at NAFSA Paul Simon Award winning institutions will guide participants through the process of planning innovative, far-reaching programs of internationalization at small colleges. Participants in the workshop will begin by identifying goals and objectives for internationalization at their institutions. From there, they will proceed to map their institutions’ existing assets (on campus and beyond) for internationalization, identify needs and obstacles, and discuss ways to deploy the assets to address these and move forward. They will then develop the initial contours of a three to five year internationalization plan, work in more depth on one activity in the plan they hope to implement in the coming year, and identify the desired output and outcomes of the activity.

Participants will present their plans at the end of the workshop for critique by the other participants and workshop facilitators. This workshop will further the AIEA conference themes of facilitating change by applying imagination and focusing on the leadership role.

Structure
  • Introduction/ Framing: Internationalization at Small, Undergraduate Institutions (15-20 min)
  • Focus Areas: 3-4 brief (5-10 min w/ examples) presentations, each followed by (45 min/ea.) small group/ hands-on work, with 5-10 minute breaks between focus areas
  • Final Wrap-up/ presentation of plans/ ideas (15-20 minutes)
Focus Areas
  • identifying goals and objectives for internationalization
  • mapping assets, needs, obstacles, and opportunities

Engage with Africa

Members $125; Non-members $300 (Early Bird Registration: by Dec. 14)
Members $175; Non-members $350 (Regular Registration: Dec. 15-Jan. 25)
Members $225; Non-members $400 (Late Registration: from Jan. 26)

In recent years, Africa has experienced an economic and political resurgence; significant demographic developments and innovations in technology. Today, seventy percent of the fastest growing economies are in Africa (1). The benefits of growth appear to be reaching many of Africa’s people. Poverty is falling and there is evidence of a growing middle class. About 90 million Africa households had joined the consuming class by 2011, which is an increase of 31 million households in barely over a decade (2). In addition, Africa is now the world’s youngest continent with sixty-two percent of the population under the age of 25 (3). Africa is now the second largest mobile phone market in the world with over 600 million subscribers (4). And many sources acknowledge that Africa is leading the way in mobile technology innovations such as mobile banking, internet connectivity and interaction with social media.

Education, especially tertiary education, will play a major role in sustaining and expanding the positive trends on the continent. However, given the size of the youth explosion many African countries currently lack the financial and human resources to provide quality education to the increasing demands for tertiary education and skills development. Do these constraints present opportunities for U.S. higher education institutions? If done properly, the answer is yes.

This workshop will frame the potential for recruiting and study abroad programs by focusing on:
  • Current economic, technology and social developments
  • Why the developments in Africa are important to U.S. colleges and universities
    • The role of human capital development in recruiting and study abroad in Africa and why it matters
    • The role of social institutions in capacity building and political economy of nations
  • A context for understanding African secondary school education systems - models and grading
  • Best practices:
    • The learning and challenges of recruiting and study abroad programs
    • The importance of the on campus experience
  • Interactive discussion and action plans
