ACA’s associate member, the Institute of International Education (IIE), a private non-profit leader in the international exchange of people and ideas, has recently been active in publishing new research.
The latest report, entitled “Rebuilding Higher Education in Myanmar”, presents findings from a recent IIE delegation and includes observations on the context of higher education in Myanmar, an analysis of needs facing the sector and recommendations to support partnerships and academic exchanges. The report was released and discussed at a bi-national conference call on 12 April 2013, dealing with higher education cooperation between the U.S. and Myanmar. IIE President Allan Goodman moderated the discussion, and representatives of 50 U.S. colleges and universities called in to take part. The briefing paper is intended to provide policy makers, foundations, private sector corporations, and higher education professionals with an overview of potential areas for engagement and will help facilitate the timely implementation of much-needed higher education capacity building activities that will be critical for the next phase of Myanmar’s economic development.
The IIE also released the spring 2013 IIENetworker magazine "Higher Education and International Development" as a free interactive web flipbook. The issue examines a wide range of international development strategies that colleges, universities, and other organisations have devised and implemented to foster economic and educational growth around the world. Among the topics covered in this issue are the interactions between higher education and international development aid, based on the findings of a long-term research project of the Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa, as well as the partnerships at the nexus of global change and the critical role of leadership training.
Past issues of IIENetworker are available in the IIE’s digital edition archives.
