* 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.
