TIES - 1st Workshop: "Internationalisation and Globalisation in HE"

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 to Thursday, December 16, 2010
Mansoura University, Mansoura, Egypt

This workshop was intended to give participants a glimpse of recognised globalisation and internationalisation theory, and also look at the all-important question “Why internationalise?”. For some HE institutions, the balance between competition and cooperation is hard to find, and this workshop explored that question in depth. The workshop specifically addressed topics such as:

  • Current Situation of Higher Education in Arab World and future scenarios
  • Trends in internationalisation of Higher Education in Europe
  • Trends in funding internationalisation activities in Higher Education
  • Analysis of institutional self-evaluation of TIES partners internationalization
  • Basic tools for internationalisation

The workshop acted as an introduction to the overall topic area, and an important part of its development determined if these concepts have the same significance and meaning for all participants and in different regions.
