    1. INTERNATIONALIZATION OF EDUCATION: KEY TO GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS Dr Max Walsh Education Consultant / Adviser Address to the Philippines Association for Teachers of Educational Foundations (PATEF) Conference, Palawan, Philippines November 25, 2011

    2. OUTLINE OF PAPER Introduction Globalization Globalized & Internationalized Education Being Globally Competitive Features of an Internationalized Education System How The Philippines can become more “Internationalized”?

    3. GLOBALIZATION To meet the challenges of globalization, it would in fact appear necessary to prepare individuals for a workplace where responsibilities are constantly changing, where vertical management is replaced by networking, where information passes through multiple and informal channels, where initiative-taking is more important than obedience, and where strategies are especially complex because of the expansion of markets beyond national borders (Jacques Hallak, Fmr Asst D-G of Education, UNESCO)

    4. Educators need to prepare individuals for a workplace where responsibilities are constantly changing, (it means, therefore, that education must help individuals to perform tasks for which they were not originally trained and to be able to adapt) where vertical management is replaced by networking. (it means, therefore, that education must help individuals to prepare for a non-linear career path, and to learn to work in teams that must have a common goal)

    5. Educators need to prepare individuals for a workplace where information passes through multiple and informal channels (it means, therefore, that education must help individuals to use information independently and to be able to evaluate it as valid or wrong) where initiative-taking is more important than obedience (it means, therefore, that education must help individuals to develop a capacity for improvisation as well as creativity)

    6. Educators need to prepare individuals for a workplace where strategies are especially complex because of the expansion of markets beyond national borders (it means, therefore, that education must help individuals to lay the basis of complex thinking linked to different cultures through international links)

    7. 10 Forces that flattened the world Flattener #1 The fall of the Berlin Wall (in 1989) Flattener #2 Netscape went public (in 1995) Flattener #3 Work Flow Software Flattener #4 Open Source software Flattener #5 Outsourcing Flattener #6 Off-shoring Flattener #7 Supply-chaining Flattener #8 In-sourcing Flattener #9 In-forming Flattener #10 The Wireless Revolution

    8. Convergence 1 (from “The World Is Flat”) “The creation of a global, Web-enabled playing field, that allows for multiple forms of collaboration – the sharing of knowledge and work – in real time, without regard to geography, distance or, in the near future, even language” (Friedman, 2005, p 176)

    9. Globalization and Internationalization ‘Globalization and internationalization are related but not the same thing. Globalization is the context of economic and academic trends that are part of the reality of the 21st century. Internationalization includes the policies and practices undertaken by academic systems and institutions—and even individuals—to cope with the global academic environment’.

    10. Internationalization of Education Internationalization of education includes the policies and practices undertaken by your national higher education system, by your own academic systems and your own institutions to introduce international dimensions and understandings to it.

    11. Being Globally Competitive Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings Top 300 Asian Universities Number 62 University of the Philippines Number 68 Ateneode Manila Number 104 University of Santo Tomas Number 107 De La Salle University

    13. FEATURES OF AN INTERNATIONALIZED SYSTEM Academic Resources Support for Research Quality of Facilities The Learning Environment Curriculum Gender Equity International Indicators (Numbers of international students and staff)

    14. Academic Resources high level funding for resource materials now switching to on-line access to resources. 2. Support for Research Data-driven and not derived solely from work published elsewhere (the so-called research paper)

    15. 3. Quality of Facilities Might not be as important as you think . The Learning Environment Multi-cultural Team work based Interactive, sometimes globally Non-conventional teaching styles

    16. 5. Curriculum use of global events as focus topics study of a foreign language (English?) 6. Gender Equity no stereo-typing resources carefully selected roles of men and women carefully recognized

    17. 7. International Indicators how many foreign students? how many foreign staff?

    18. How does The Philippines compare on these criteria? Academic Resources Support for Research Quality of Facilities The Learning Environment Curriculum Gender Equity International Indicators (Numbers of international students and staff)

    19. Gender Equity “the State shall endeavor to raise consciousness of the general public in recognizing the dignity of women through the strategic use of mass media” Section 1.6 of the Magna Carta of Women (RA 9710)
