Comment la globalisation bouleverse l’université
En France, cette globalisation de l’enseignement supérieur est d’abord européenne et a commencé avec le processus de Bologne, lancé en 1998, ayant pour but de faire de l’espace européen de l’enseignement supérieur, un système « d’économie de la connaissance la plus compétitive et la plus dynamique du monde ». C’est donc d’une globalisation économique qu’il s’agit, dont un des aspects les plus visibles est la hausse et la financiarisation des frais d’inscription.

Cultural Globalization Is Not Americanization

Cultural Globalization Is Not Americanization
We don't hear a lot about world free trade and education. It could be because, as some suggest, "The whole idea of Transnational Ed has a not-so-vaguely colonialist dimension to it. In the context of the WTO and GATS, there will be net exporters and net importers of Higher Education services. It is not difficult to guess which nations will line up on which side of that divide." On the other hand, we have people like the author of this article who argues that world free trade will not have as a result the globalization of American culture. More...

When East meets West in transnational higher education

By Catherine Gomes. Whenever I write an opinion piece about international education in Australia, I always brace myself for the thinly disguised xenophobia that emerges in comments reflecting on the ‘international student’. More...

World-class systems rather than world-class universities

By Rajani Naidoo. Equality in higher education is a global issue, particularly in relation to the current fetish for global competition. There is a blind faith that competition in all areas of higher education will automatically lead to positive outcomes, including greater equality. However, in general different types of competition interact to create major barriers to enhancing equality. More...

Nations join emerging multi-polar global science system

By Yojana Sharma. Research-intensive universities now operate as a single network on a world scale with more and more nations entering this open system particularly built around science research. It is a global network “open to enter but intensively integrated inside”, says Simon Marginson, director of the Centre for Global Higher Education or CGHE. More...

Let Them Eat IT: The Myth of the Global Village as an Interactive Utopia

Let Them Eat IT: The Myth of the Global Village as an Interactive Utopia
I will be upfront and admit that I am a McLuhanist. Communications technology extends our senses and this to a large degree eliminates spatial boundaries, bringing communication (and hence information and empowerment) to humanity as a whole, not just to the world's elites. More...

Global Universities: Sowing the Seeds of the Future, or Hanging On To The Past?

Global Universities: Sowing the Seeds of the Future, or Hanging On To The Past?
The author concludes, "Universities that hang on to an elitist concept of higher education are unlikely to be those that can successfully sow the seeds of a future of mass access, providing millions of people with the intellectual and employment opportunities they are currently denied," and thereby possibly explains some of the difficulties encountered by such enterprises as Universitas 21 (documented recently in OLDaily).
