Korkeakoulujen kansainvälisten asiain henkilöstön opintomatka 2008

11.-15.2.2008

Fulbright Center järjesti helmikuussa 2008 suomalaisten yliopistojen ja ammattikorkeakoulujen kansainvälisten asiain hallinnon väelle tarkoitetun opintomatkan Yhdysvaltoihin. Järjestelyistä Yhdysvalloissa vastasi Institute of International Education (IIE) New Yorkissa ja hanketta tuki Suomen opetusministeriö. Matkan tavoitteena oli lisätä suomalais-amerikkalaista opiskelijoiden ja tutkijoiden liikkuvuutta sekä yhteistyötä suomalaisten ja amerikkalaisten korkeakoulujen välillä.

Opintomatkan matkaraportti

Matkaraportti kokoaa yhteen matkan sisällöllistä antia sen tärkeimmistä teemoista. Lisäksi kirjoittajat vertailevat yhdysvaltalaisia ja suomalaisia käytäntöjä ja pohtivat erojen ja yhtäläisyyksien vaikutuksia käytännön kv-työhön korkeakouluissa sekä eri vaihtoehtoja matkalla opitun soveltamiseksi konkreettisesti suomalais-amerikkalaiseen korkeakouluyhteistyöhön.
 

Raportti sisältää myös yhteenvedon IIE:n syksyllä 2007 tekemästä kyselytutkimuksesta, jonka tarkoituksena oli kartoittaa eri maiden korkeakoulujen halukkuutta ja kapasiteettia ottaa vastaan aiempaa suurempia määriä amerikkalaisia opiskelijoita. Samassa tutkimuksessa IIE kartoitti amerikkalaisten korkeakoulujen halukkuutta ja valmiuksia asianmukaisesti valmentaa ja lähettää opiskelijoitaan maailmalle. IIE toteutti kyselytutkimuksen Suomessa yhteistyössä Fulbright Centerin kanssa ja tässä matkaraportissa julkaistaan siitä Suomea koskeva yhteenveto.
