Spring Forum 2014

Theme: What's new in the EU?

In 2013, the European Commission issued a new communication on European higher education in the world, which was followed by the long-awaited new programmes Erasmus+ and Horizon2020. Everyone is talking about the new EU education policy and programmes, but how are they actually different from previous ones and what do they mean in practice for you, your institution and students? The spring issue of Forum, covering these topics will be pubslihed in April.

Theme: Transnational education

Transnational education (TNE) has become a buzz word in higher education circles, with conferences now dedicated to the topic. Relatively simple to define, yet with multiple aims, implications and interpretations, TNE is the practice of education from one country being offered in another. 

Higher education institutions are increasingly attracted to the idea of establishing branch campuses abroad, and while education hubs may thrive, many branch campuses tend to close after only a few years of operation. Even though host countries welcome TNE as it brings education and highly reputed institutions to their country, its adverse effects such as brain drain, lack of interaction with host society and upholding poorer standards of academic freedom are hotly debated.
What’s your experience of TNE? We are looking for articles for the summer issue of Forum on the following subtopics: 
  • Forms of TNE (branch campuses, franchising/validation, education hubs)
  • Academic values and cultural differences
  • Value for higher education institutions: reputation, revenue and outreach
  • Perspectives of TNE host countries (rationales, policy context)
  • Interaction with and impact on host society
  • Success and failure in TNE
  • Quality of TNE education
  • Student experience and qualifications

Each article should be between 800 and 1200 words in length and should be written in a journalistic style as opposed to a scholarly style. If you are interested in submitting an article, please send your work to EAIE Publications by 1 May 2014.
