Berlin is the place, and “internationalisation”
is the theme of next year’s ACA Annual Conference
. The Many Faces of Internationalisation
will take place from 13 to 15 May
, and will be co-organised
by ACA, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German-American Fulbright Commission. The conference is expected to draw an audience of 300 policy makers and practitioners
Once a marginal concern, suitable at best for Sunday speeches, internationalisation of higher education has moved centre stage
. But the increasing centrality of internationalisation has gone hand-in-glove with a blurring of its meaning
. This is why it is time to revisit the theme
, to analyse the many concepts and meanings it has today, and to create an overview of its practice in different parts of the world. This is what the conference aims to achieve.
The Many Faces of Internationalisation
will be held in a mixture of plenary sessions and workshops, and will use a wide variety of presentation and discussion formats. Speakers and panellists will be the leading theorists and practitioners in internationalisation from Europe and elsewhere in the world
. Registrations will start in January 2007. Mark the date in your diary and check the ACA website for updates.
