Higher Education in Latin America: The International Dimension (Directions in Development) (Directions in Development)

Economic growth and social progress are increasingly dependent on the production, distribution and application of knowledge, the availability of a competitive skilled human capital, as well as a high added value service sector like education, information and so on. To sum up, students learning outcomes and competitiveness have been hampered by an obsolete educational model, an outdated academic offer and insufficient professionalisation of faculty furthermore, knowledge production has been limited by an insufficient critical mass of qualified scholars and scarce investment in science and technology. In todays world, political education, especially the higher education is considered the fourth aspect of the foreign policy.

Policies china include the policy of the free market system, entry democracy in political territory, globalization of activities, humanist changing of industries related to worker to knowledge-based industries, pass of economic development to people-oriented development, and changes societies. The other hand, in this section, the science and technology of advanced societies are absorbed and associated with creativity and innovation is provided for use internal. Nevertheless, this finding should be mitigated, as institutions further state that only 51 of institutional leaders attribute high importance to internationalisation, in contrast with the wa of 65 ( the main rationales reported are to improve student preparedness for a globalised world (39) to internationalise curriculum and improve quality (18) and to strengthen research and knowledge capacity production (16).

For large public universities, international mobility among faculty has been a higher priority than student mobility, and is generally dedicated to an elite of full time academics holding postgraduate degrees. All these aspects are the foundations of solidarity and peaceful coexistence among nations and of a true global citizenship. Supply national security, to prepare students for a global workforce, encourage citizens of active political that tend to have democracies, promote listening and problem solving skills which is necessary to create a multi-cultural harmony, provide a means for students to gain international education. Another negative impact on te is the low quality of the previous levels of education (basic and secondary education), as shown by la low ranking in the programme for international student assessment.

    Thus, graduate programs focused on resorting to the latest scientific and research achievements, labor productivity and educating experts and professionals. All these indicators show la as the region with less funding at all, both at national and institutional level ( constantly reported obstacles are insufficient proficiency in foreign languages as a limitation to student and faculty mobility and cooperation projects, as well as the lack of curriculum flexibility, making difficult the curricular internationalisation and the establishment of international joint and double degrees ( ). This could also be an implicit recognition that the quality of education has not yet achieved international standards.

    This further confirms our hypothesis that the internationalisation approach of policy makers is traditional (mainly focused on mobility) and does not yet embrace the concept of , which is the world trend and is widely recommended to be implemented in other regions. The usa as the first industrial nation of the seven industrialized nations has a long history of higher education. As a result, notwithstanding the progress made, the rates of outgoing students are among the lowest in the world, the internationalisation of curricula is almost inexistent, la has the lowest number of joint and double degrees, there are no regional strategies to attract international students and talented scholars, insufficient proficiency in foreign languages and cultures is a trait of la students, scholars with international profiles are the exception and so on.

    Indeed, when students leave their own cultural environment for study abroad or academic programmes based on intercultural communication techniques with contents that highlight the international and global dimension of human and social interaction they have the possibility, for instance, to develop a capacity for adaptation, flexibility, autonomy, to broaden their cultural and intellectual horizons, to increase their levels of intercultural tolerance and interpersonal communication through experiencing different idiosyncrasies ( nevertheless, in order to achieve the scope of the above-mentioned objectives, the process of internationalisation must be implemented in the te sector through a way, going beyond the traditional notion of international cooperation and physical mobility of individuals. The notion of means that strategies should be transversal to the whole policy design, integrating the international dimension in all institutional policies and programmes, and impact the three levels of the educational process macro (decision making and design of institutional policies), medium (curriculum structure and policy) and micro (teaching and learning process). Furthermore, no regional strategy, at least significant, to attract foreign students and skilled scholars has been observed ( ), explaining the absence of available data in the different oecd and unesco reports. In 2005, the main benefit reported was by far improved academic quality ( as for key potential risks of increased internationalisation, teis report brain drain (17) higher than the 10 wa pointing to a regional major problem related with academic mobility and the structure of national research systems commodification and commercialisation of educational programmes (12) and increase of foreign degree mills andor low quality providers (12), also higher than the wa (9).
