From June 25 to July 7, 2017, Hans de Wit, together with Sonja Knudson, trained 15 international officers from Philippine universities at Ottowa, Montreal and Toronto. The training program, Internationalization of Higher Education in the Philippines: A Strategic Planning Professional Development Program, was organized by the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) and the Commission for Higher Education Development (CHED) of the Philippines. In advance, Hans de Wit and Laura Rumbley designed the course outline and syllabus for the program. A follow-up workshop will take place at the end of January 2018 in the Philippines.
The incoming cohort of students in the second year of the Master’s Program in International Higher Education (below) features participants from Brazil, China, Japan, Pakistan, and the United States. This 30-credit program can be completed in one intense calendar year, or spread out over 2 years. Some of the coursework can be completed online, allowing students significant geographic flexibility after the first semester. New elective courses to be offered this year include Global Perspectives on Student Affairs in Higher Education (to be taught by Dr. Betty Leask, Professor of Higher Education at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia) and Global Perspectives on Higher Education Economics and Finance (to be taught by Dr. Ariane de Gayardon, based at the Centre for Global Higher Education in London).
