By Tatiana Belousova. ‘South to South’ student migration has, arguably, different ‘push and pull’ factors compared with ‘North to North’ (or ‘South to North’) migration.

HE leaders need more training in internationalisation

By Hans de Wit.

Are the professional learning needs of teachers neglected in internationalisation of HE?

By Brendan O’Malley – Managing Editor. In Commentary this week, Ly Tran and Truc Le say increasing internationalisation in tertiary education makes it necessary for teachers to be provided with professional learning that enables them to effectively address the learning needs of international students. Ayenachew A Woldegiyorgis considers what can be done to address rife sexual violence and gender bias on university campuses in Ethiopia. R Ponnusamy says India needs to recognise that it will take more than funds to build India’s top higher education institutions to world-class status. And Obafemi Ogunleye writes that as new partners seek to enter the African health market through higher education, institutions that are already working in these communities should be setting the ground rules.
   In our section on Academic Freedom, Brendan O’Malley reports on a settlement of US$300,000 to be paid by Washington State University in the US to a leading researcher to resolve a complaint about infringement of academic freedom by university administrators whom he accused of trying to silence him and impede his research.
   In our World Blog, Nita Temmerman questions whether single, high-stakes exams effectively measure genuine student learning and suggests other methods of assessment that provide students with constructive feedback to help them improve.
   In Features, Tunde Fatunde writes that a recent sex-for-marks scandal at a Nigerian university has highlighted the prevalence of the problem in the country’s universities and the difficulties in addressing it. And Jan Petter Myklebust reports that some universities in Europe are answering French President Emmanuel Macron’s call for 20 European university networks, but some stakeholders warn of ambiguities in his vision and the European Students’ Union warns against ‘elitism’.

The benefits and risks of HE internationalisation

By Futao Huang and Tsukasa Daizen. It is generally acknowledged that internationalisation of higher education results in both benefits and risks. Despite incredible difficulties in foreseeing the future of internationalisation, it is clear that both United States President Donald Trump’s policy and the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union will produce a great deal of uncertainty for internationalisation of higher education, not only in the US and the UK, but also other continents and countries.
