6 2. Keynote Professor Robin Middlehurst, Kingston University London Developments in Internationalisation and TNE: concepts, models, strategies, challenges This keynote presentation aims to set the Netherlands Internationalisation Vision in the broader context of developments in internationalisation and transnational education in other parts of the world. It will focus on concepts and models, identify trends, and offer some case examples of institutional strategies. It will also discuss practical steps and challenges in implementing institutional and national strategies. 3. Selecting your subsession of choice subsession information There are two rounds of five subsessions. Although most subsessions are in English, some are in Dutch. The location of each subsession will be presented on the screens at the venue. The locations will also be presented at the end of the plenary session in the morning. Please note: 1) That the number of participants per subsession is limited. On the day of the conference, participants can therefore decide to join a particular subsession by taking a voucher of that subsession. These are placed at the registration desk. When there are no more vouchers available for a subsession that session is full. 2) All subsession have an interactive format. Some sessions request that you, when possible, bring your smartphone or even a portable computer. While this is requested it is not a requirement for joining the particular subsession. Round 1 ( ) 1.1 Visie op Internationalisering: OCW & instellingen Beleid (Dutch) Van 2010 t/m 2014 loopt het project Stimulering Joint Degrees, waarin met financiële stimulans vanuit het Ministerie van OCW, de ontwikkeling van joint degrees en joint programmes is bevorderd. Na een kick-off conferentie in 2010 zijn wij nu aanbeland bij het einde van dit stimuleringstraject. Belangrijk is om nu de balans op te maken. Hoe kijken we terug op de afgelopen vier jaren? Hoe is OCW aan de slag gegaan met de aanbevelingen voortkomend uit de tussenrapportage over de periode ? In een open gesprek met vier stakeholders zal onder leiding van Maria Henneman worden ingegaan op wat er de afgelopen jaren in het kader van joint programmes is gebeurd en wat er in de (nabije) toekomst gaat gebeuren. Ook de zaal wordt in het gesprek betrokken. Aan het gesprek zal van OCW Melissa Keizer aanschuiven. Jurgen Rienks vertegenwoordigt de VSNU, en vanuit het werkveld zullen twee ervaringsexperts het woord voeren: Femke van der Geest van de Universiteit Utrecht en Peter van Bragt van Avans Hogeschool. 6

7 1.2 Strategy please: how to implement strategy in your organisation Policy (English) For part of this subsession the speakers ask that, if possible, you bring your smartphone or ipad, in order to engage you fully in their interactive session. Joint and double degree programmes have become a regular part of internationalisation portfolios at many higher education institutions around the world. Such programmes can offer a range of opportunities for students, faculty, and entire institutions alike. Using synergies with their international partners, institutions can pool resources and design unique programmes, attract additional students, and raise their global profiles. However, there is evidence that many institutions may enter these complex forms of international collaboration partly based on incorrect expectations and without a clear understanding of how to manage their development. This contribution argues that challenges in developing collaborative often result from the lack of a strategic approach and the absence of appropriate institutional policies and guidelines. This can not only hinder the ability of institutions to fully capitalize on the potential offered by collaborative degree programmes but it can also lead to negative effects. Based on the recent publication Global Perspectives in International Joint and Double Degree Programs (DAAD/IIE, 2013) and on previous international surveys, Matthias Kuder of the Freie Universität Berlin addresses a select set of examples that will ultimately prompt us to raise the question: How strategic are we about internationalisation, and specifically about joint and double degree programmes? The Raboud University Nijmegen will subsequently present an interactive best practice they used during their international staff week. This practice allowed them not only to present their policy paper on internationalisation to their own staff and foreign partners working in the field internationalisation, but also to acquaint the participants with the concept and development of a policy paper and the implementation of this vision on internationalisation in their daily practice. Marian Janssen, Koen Schilders and Robin Kayser will engage participants of this session into an interactive questioning and answering routine using a programme called Shakespeak. The answers given by the participants will be used as fuel for discussion and the speakers will present their own practice, tips and tricks. 1.3 How do I start a joint programme? Workshop (English) This subsession will engage it s participants in a direct practice. In order to directly assess the resources you are asked to bring your own portable computer. (Smartphones will not suffice as they do not provide the support needed). In this session Michael Blakemore from the University of Durham and Madalena Pereira from the Nuffic will guide you through the range of issues to consider when developing a joint programme. You will have the opportunity to test/experience two tools developed to support HEIs working with joint programmes and gain insights into the institutional, educational, international, and multi-disciplinary challenges that need to be considered. This session offers it s participants a very practical approach and aims to provide insight in how to start a joint programme. At the end of the session participants: 1) Are aware of two existing tools (JDAZ and EMQA) and understand how these tools can support their work with joint programmes; 2) Understand one to three of the most important issues to take into account when developing a joint programme; 3) Have shared their own learning issues with fellow colleagues. 7

8 1.4 Vormen van structurele mobiliteit (1) Best practice (Dutch) Internationale samenwerking en studentuitwisseling kunnen verschillende vormen aannemen. In de praktijk worden verschillende vormen van mobiliteit al met succes toegepast. Sterk in opkomst is o.a. virtuele mobiliteit. Bij de TU Delft zijn zij hierin al ver gevorderd; hier worden verschillende vormen van online onderwijs gebruikt. In zijn presentatie zal Udo Ouwerkerk ingaan op deze vormen en wat de samenhang hiertussen. De focus zal hierbij vooral liggen op wat in de MSc-track Watermanagement al wordt toegepast, o.a. het gebruik van online practica. De Master Water Management is als programma volledig online te volgen. Anja Krumeich of Maastricht University will speak of the Maastricht Master of Science in Global Health, which has been developed in collaboration with partners in Canada, Colombia, Thailand and India. This programme offers a unique set of options for students at each of the partner institutions: while each of the partners offers core courses based on their views on Global health in the first trimester (Sept.-Dec.), in the second trimester students can take an elective track at each of the institutions. This allows them to specialize in the area of their interest in another part of the world. Besides this more traditional form of student exchange, students of all universities participate in on-line tutorials and lectures in the so called Foundations of Global Health courses. These courses have been developed jointly and are executed jointly by the five partners. Students from the different universities are placed in virtual tutorials were they meet peers from the other universities and were they work on group assignments guided by a tutor from any one of the partner universities. Supporting lectures organized collectively and group assignments are graded by representatives from the five partners. Moreover, all students meet each other during the yearly symposium in Manipal, India. This two-week annual symposium is organized and executed by the collaborating partners as well and offer students to meet their virtual peers face-to-face and to collaborate once more in one of the many fieldprojects Manipal is involved in. In her presentation Anja will discuss experiences, challenges and benefits of this form of intensive collaboration. Advancing mobility through Double Degree Programmes is het onderwerp dat Rieks Bos van de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen zal bespreken. Internationale "double degree" programma's kunnen een effectief en efficiënt instrument zijn om de internationalisering van een HEI te stimuleren. Ze kunnen internationale mobiliteit van studenten en staf bevorderen, studenten bijzondere kennis en ervaring bieden en de internationale zichtbaarheid en reputatie versterken. Dat vraagt echter wel om een breed gedragen strategische visie, een goede inbedding in de reguliere onderwijsorganisatie, en een flinke dosis pragmatisme en creativiteit. 1.5 International branch campuses Best practice (English) This session will present best practices regarding the development of international branch campuses in foreign countries. The Dutch Minister of Education has made her intentions clear for opening the possibility of transnational education for Dutch institutions of higher education. Freddy Mortier, vice-rector of the University of Gent, shall explain how Gent s International campus in Korea came to pass. He will discuss the following questions: What is the Global Campus concept that was launched by the Korean authorities? Why did Ghent University decide to step in and focus on molecular biology, environmental technology and food technology? How was a specific governance structure with a fire wall between Ghent University and the Korean branch set up? How did the negotiations with the local authorities (more specifically the Ministries involved, the Incheon Free Economic Zone Authority and the Global Campus Company) went about? And, what are the business challenges and risks involved for the universities that participate in the Global Campus project? Daniel Karsch of the Technical University of Berlin will elaborate on the experiences they had with their campus in El Gouna, Egypt. What were the strategic reasons behind this step? What challenges and successes were they confronted with? And, what is the future of this international campus? 8

9 Round 2 ( ) 2.1 European accreditation JOQAR & MULTRA Policy (English) The European Consortium for accreditation (ECA) has developed several tools in order to better and simplify the accreditation of joint programmes in Europe. Mark Frederiks of the NVAO will present new possibilities offered by initiatives such as MULTRA (Multilateral Agreement on the Mutual Recognition of Accreditation) and JOQAR (Joint Programmes Quality Assurance and Recognition of degrees awarded). The JOQAR project had to facilitate the accreditation of Erasmus Mundus programmes. MULTRA offers institutions the opportunity for quicker and easier accreditation by all accreditation organisations involved. The European master Euroculture is the first programme that, in a pilot phase, used the opportunities MULTRA has to offer. 2.2 Quality of joint programmes Best practice (English) A connection to twitter will come in hand for this subsession. A Guide for Joint Doctorates. In 2013, the Réseau Franco-Néerlandais (RFN) and the Frans-Nederlandse Academie (FNA, whose responsibilities have been transmitted to the Nuffic) published a Guide for Joint Doctorates on PhD Programmes between France and the Netherlands. Leen Drieskens (RFN) will be presenting this guide, which lists the most salient points of negotiation and discussion between both parties. It also includes background information so that administrators, supervisors and PhD candidates in France, the Netherlands or a third partner country can better understand the respective country s situation and to shed light on why some aspects may not be easily managed. The guide is intended to limit back and forth negotiations required to come to an agreement on joint doctoral programmes, and was developed with the expertise of the RFN/FNA team and with the input of French and Dutch experts. As an illustration, several good examples of contracts for joint doctorates will be presented in Utrecht. The director of the RFN Richard Davis will lead a short discussion based on remarks and ideas that will have possibly been tweeted by the audience during the session. Subsequently Piet Lens from UNESO-IHE will engage the participants in his experiences with the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctoral programme Environmental Technologies for Contaminated Soils, Sediments and Solid Waste (ETECOS3). The last few years a joint PhD is developed within this programme. A joint PhD degree that is awarded by the Université Paris-Est (France), University Cassino (Italy) and UNESCO-IHE. Piet will described how this PhD programme was developed, which quality requirements were specified and which aspects are important for establishing the joint degree. 2.3 How to manage joint programmes? Workshop (English) JOIMAN was a European workgroup that in 2012 offered advice on managing and administrating joint programmes. On the basis of the workgroup s findings, a training programme is developed for current and future managers and supervisors of joint programmes. Tabea Mager of the University of Leipzig will offer a training on the do s and don ts of managing joint programmes. She will be assisted by both Femke van der Geest of Utrecht University and Wessel Meijer of the Radboud University Nijmegen, who will share their experiences of the Dutch practice. 9

10 2.4 Vormen van structurele mobiliteit (2) Best practice (Dutch) Johan Wouters of the Avans University of Applied Sciences will give the example of the European Project Semester (EPS). The EPS is a semester-long (30 EC) programme, which is divided into two parts: 1) A real-life project on site of and for a real-life company, performed by a multi-national, multi-disciplinary team of students; 2) A study programme comprising courses with subjects like project management, problem-solving techniques, teambuilding, communication skills, cross-cultural behaviour, and languages. The main objective is to train students from different countries and different disciplines to work together in multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary groups. Over the years EPS has proven itself as a low threshold programme for students to get international experience and to acquire necessary skills to operate in a multi-cultural environment. Students attend the programme sponsored by Erasmus. Because of the structuring of the programme, the constant supervision of coaches from companies as well as universities, the care of local student buddies, and the assistance in finding proper housing, the EPS programme offers a safe and relatively carefree opportunity for students to go abroad. At the same time the EPS programme has stimulated and accommodated teaching staff of participating universities to take part in staff mobility. Contacts between the participating universities has helped to develop international awareness and the development of an intercultural path within each own institution. It has also been instrumental in developing international exchange relationships. Het CEMS-programma is een geslaagd voorbeeld van een grensoverschrijdend Masters-programma. CEMS is in 1988 door vier Europese business schools opgericht als de Community of European Management Schools waarna het langzamerhand doorgroeide naar een wereldwijd samenwerkingsverband van 29 topscholen op het gebied van management & business (en sindsdien gewoon CEMS heet). Sinds 2005 heeft het altijd in de top-10 van beste pre-experience managementprogramma s van The Financial Times ranking gestaan. In zijn presentatie legt René Olie van de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam uit hoe CEMS functioneert en hoe het zich tot een succesvol voorbeeld van grensoverschrijdende samenwerking op onderwijsgebied heeft ontwikkeld. 2.5 Monitoring quality of internationalisation Best practice (English) Maastricht University (UM) is one of the most international universities in the Netherlands. Internationalisation is at the very core of UM s DNA: almost all of the study programmes are offered in English, half of the degree-seeking student population comes from outside of the Netherlands, almost all study programmes offer students the possibility to go abroad as part of a student exchange or a joint/double degree to name just a few examples. To underline this, Maastricht University acquired the NVAO Distinctive Quality Feature Internationalisation on institutional level in Moreover, several of our bachelors and masters carry this quality feature on programme level. However, their credo is not internationalisation for the sake of internationalisation itself, but it should serve a purpose and deliver measurable results. How to monitor the effects and the quality of internationalisation in a Higher Education institution? In their contribution, Tom van Veen and Alexandra Rosenbach will address Maastricht University s quality assurance system with regards to internationalisation on both central and decentral level and present best practices. Maastricht University s application for and successful acquisition of the NVAO Distinctive Quality Feature Internationalisation will serve as a framework for the session. Following this presentation, Thomas Blanc de la Carrere, will elaborate further on the Distinctive Quality Feature Internationalisation (DQFI) as implemented so far by NVAO. Since 2012, in the framework of the CeQuInt project, a consortium of 12 quality assurance agencies has been working in porting this successful NVAO experience at European level. The initial NVAO framework was updated with the input of the project consortium member agencies, approved by the European HE stakeholders and tested in 12 pilot procedures to assess the quality of internationalisation at programme, faculty (school) and institution levels. This new framework will replace the DQFI of the NVAO and will be implemented across Europe. The presentation will introduce the public to the milestones of the CeQuInt project, the evolution of the 10

11 internationalisation assessment frameworks as compared to the initial DQFI of NVAO and the upcoming implications of these changes for Dutch institutions. This presentation will be followed by a feedback from the University of Reims - one of the 12 pilot procedures of the CeQuInt project having undergone an assessment of internationalisation according to the new frameworks. Harald Schraeder of the University de Reims Champagne-Ardenne will share the experience of his university as a participant in the pilot of the European method to assess the quality of internationalisation. 11
