Screenshot-2018-5-3 EAIE

Through ‘mainstreaming internationalisation’ and ‘comprehensive internationalisation’ efforts, international engagement has become more integrated into the core aspects of higher education (teaching, research and service).

Is internationalisation of the curriculum fading in Australian universities?

By Brendan O’Malley – Managing Editor. In Commentary, Craig Whitsed, Wendy Green and Carla Camargo Cassol say ‘internationalisation of the curriculum’ has all but disappeared as an educational priority in Australian universities, and question how academics might positively shape the discourse of global employability, which has replaced it. With global competition for international students becoming intense, Rahul Choudaha says universities need to consider the changes in the external environment and recalibrate their value proposition for international students to promote sustainable enrolment growth. Rosemary Salomone writes that the recent Dutch court ruling on English-language programmes is not the clear victory for universities teaching in English that some think. And Osman Z Barnawi discusses a recent book on transnational education that questions the idea that intellectual and policy infrastructures of higher education in Asia and the Middle East have been wholly imposed by the West.

Edwin Naidu reports that Universities South Africa, the body representing vice-chancellors of the country’s public universities, is planning to investigate the gender imbalance at senior management levels of universities. And John Agaba reports on a move in the African country of Uganda by frustrated professional bodies in the health sector to introduce exit examinations for university graduates in a bid to improve the quality of graduates entering the health professions.
