* Conference Background and Goals
Technology like transport, communication and media-based learning have increased our ambitions to make education more global and international. Higher education has gradually felt more affinity towards the exchange of students; Diversity and learning in concentration with different cultures that has settled as road map for the coming decades. Firstly, motivation for international higher education to promote students’ mindset towards different cultures, languages and traditions. Secondly, allowing students to learn multi-cultural contexts to anticipate to the later career that involve cooperation in international teams. As inevitable side effect, universities welcome international students as source of income and exchange knowledge and skills. To be more precisely, students will take part of their courses abroad, and at least they should match a similar amount of incoming students in order to play par.
This conference aims at the scientific, pragmatic and policy awareness among scholars who face the direct need to make their curricula more culturally fair. European exchange programs like the Erasmus Mundus, the U.S. Council on International Educational Student Exchange, and the Euro-American “Atlantis” program, they all envisage an urgent agenda on how to balance local with the more global criteria in higher education. This conference helps you to build your networks and international consortia on how to be a key player in this emergent trend.
