It is without doubt very difficult to tell what the future holds for any given organization. As a nation and the world in general, we are entering a new era at an accelerating pace where by the structure of our society, our economy, as well as our institutions (our lives’ bedrock) are shifting. This era is promising to dramatically change learning, influence how learners are prepared by education and the motive for pursuing education. For the next few years to come, education trend shows that our lives and our digital will be so much linked making us to live as partners. These changes are likely to open a set of possibilities that all of us can help change.
Trends in International Education
In the past few years, the trends have been very important when it comes to creating international education. It has been about movement of students/sturdy abroad, ranking of universities and collaboration in terms of research. However, internationalization is not going to stand still and other trends that are emerging. Emerging trends could have a very positive influence in shaping the fate of international education.
Advanced higher Education Pluralization
The number of countries that provide advanced level of higher education is rising. A summation of 49 countries seem to maintain a system of higher education publishing at least 1000 journal papers every year in social science and science.(collated by Thomson). 1000 journals is a very important indicator for the existence of doctoral capacity as well as local research. This trend shows that many countries are now able to attract visiting students, researchers and scholars, as well as being collaborating partners (either across the word or neighboring countries). As the role of higher education keeps on improving in various emerging countries, we can look forward to more researchers and students from the established system spending time in these emerging countries. It can be Clearly seen in the growing number of our American students moving to China.
