Seminar:
Staff Development in Internationalisation of Higher Education

Wednesday 28 September 2016

Room 1.51

09:00 – 11:50

Stenden University of Applied Sciences

The Topic

This Seminar will look at development of staff in the area of Internationalisation of Higher Education (IoHE). Whilst the focus has long been on the outcomes of internationalisation of students, staff have received less attention than they demonstrably need. In general, the field of IoHE is moving from a quantitative phase into a qualitative phase, where outcomes are becoming more important than numbers. Nevertheless, the extent to which this attention has been developed presents a very uneven field. As the demands of society and the work place alters, so should our curricula. The struggle for many academics is that they are now asked to embed aspects into their teaching with which they may be at best only somewhat familiar. Just like the introduction of English as a medium of instruction required non-Anglophone universities to invest in upskilling their staff, so should they now invest in a similar program to ensure staff can deliver what students need beyond the disciplinary aspects. The question is what should be done and how should it be tackled effectively?
Development of appropriate interventions should be evidence based. This session will start with an overview of where the field of staff development in IoHE is at. It then continues to look at the theoretical frameworks, appropriate methodologies and effective analyses to arrive at new insights into staff development. The session is suitable for anyone interested in staff development to get an overview of where we are at. It will also address how the body of knowledge is expanded to be able to create appropriate interventions to enhance the internationalisation outcomes for students.

The Audience

This seminar is suitable for anyone wishing to understand the most recent advances in staff development in IoHE. As such it is suitable for staff interested in internationalisation of higher education and the development of staff in this regard. Thus, HRM staff of higher education institutions, staff generally concerned with the development of internationalisation activities in their programs or institutions, program leaders, academic deans, and policy developers are encouraged to attend. PhD and Master’s students wishing to enhance their understanding of the application of theoretical frameworks and the development of appropriate experimental design, and analyses are also strongly encouraged to attend.

Seminar
A New Vista for IoHE

The Topic

Internationalisation of Higher Education has long been in the forefront of the rhetoric of university leaders around the world. The adage for a long time was to send ever increasing numbers of students abroad in order to ‘internationalise’ more. Scholars such as Bengt Nielsen, Hanneke Teekens, and others sounded early warning bells about the need to do something about the non-mobile students. After all, they deserved to be ‘internationalised’ as well, didn’t they? About 20 years ago, the concept of IaH or ‘Internationalisation at Home’ was born. The massive recruitment of foreign students in Australia and the United Kingdom, driven by economic motives, was often explained as creating the international class room environment, through which non-mobile students, would become ‘internationalised’.
Today, we are at the forefront of what could be called the dawn of ‘What internationalisation of Higher Education is really about’. Whilst all these years, university leaders, politicians, and senior government leaders have promoted internationalisation as fundamental for the development of our graduates, based on not much more than the perception of participants that ‘this was a life changing experience’, we are beginning to see the first evidence of what the life changing experience really consists of and how it can be important in the development of young people.
The seminar will be one in which myths will be debunked (to borrow a phrase from Hans de Wit and Jane Knight), and the trends in Internationalisation of Higher Education will be exposed as a frame of reference for the PhD projects that will ensue from this group of candidates. It is hoped that the aspirant PhD candidates will realise that they are about to participate in ‘writing the book’ about a new vista for IoHE.

The Audience

This seminar is suitable for anyone wishing to understand where IoHE is heading to across the globe, how the development of a substantial body of knowledge in this field is only just developing, and in what way this body of knowledge might expand. It is suitable for anyone wishing to conduct research in the field of Internationalisation of Education.

The Invited Speakers

Dr. Jos Walenkamp (1948) is lector International Cooperation at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, where he heads a research group investigating i.a. the acquisition of international competencies by students while abroad or while studying in an international or in a Dutch multicultural classroom. He lectures on the future of international cooperation. He studied biology at Leiden University and fisheries biology and management at the University of Wales. He did his PhD research on the systematics and zoogeography of Caribbean starfish.
In the 1980’s he worked at the Eduardo Mondlane University in Mozambique as dean of the Biology Faculty. Later, in Nigeria, he was responsible for the Training and Research Programmes of the European Commission. In the 1990’s he joined the Netherlands Organisation for International Cooperation in Higher Education and Research, Nuffic, and was Director Development Cooperation and Director Knowledge and Innovation.
Jos Beelen is senior researcher at the research group ‘International cooperation’ at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Honorary Research Fellow at Coventry University. He is also senior policy advisor for internationalisation at the Amsterdam School of International Business.
He was the editor EAIE’s ‘toolkit’ Implementing Internationalisation at Home (2007) and has since written a range of articles on this topic, often co-authored with researchers from Europe and Australia. He acts as reviewer for the Journal of Studies in International Education. Jos is currently doing research into the internationalisation of learning outcomes in academic programmes. One of the issues he focuses on is developing the skills of academic staff that enable them to assume ownership of curriculum internationalisation
Adinda van Gaalen works as a senior policy officer and researcher at EP-Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for internationalising education. She has conducted studies on a range of topics including internationalisation strategies of higher education institutions, internationalisation at home and national internationalisation policies.
Adinda has been involved in the development of a number of quality assurance tools for internationalisation of higher education. She is the author of several publications among which the EAIE toolkit on internationalization and quality assurance. In addition, she works as an adviser and trainer in short courses and workshops. Since 20015 Adinda expanded the focus of her work to include internationalisation of secondary education. Adinda was an elected member of the General Council of EAIE in 2014-2016. She previously worked as a policy adviser, head of the international office and teacher at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Adinda holds a Master’s degree in Social Sciences from the VU University in Amsterdam. She has recently started to work on a PhD at Ghent University in Belgium.
