    April 3, 2013 - Opening Remarks and Plenary Session: Perspectives on Curricular Internationalization from a Range of Stakeholders - Faculty to Provost David Lavallee, Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs & Provost, SUNY System Administration Carol Long, Provost, SUNY Geneseo & Vice President for Academic Affairs Jenifer Cushman, Dean of International Education and Associate Professor of German, Juniata College William Skipper, Assistant Professor of Sociology and the Chair of the Sociology/Anthropology Department, SUNY Cortland Hans de Wit, Director of the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation at the Università Cattolica Sacro Cuore (Milan, Italy) and Professor (lector) of Internationalization of Higher Education at the School of Economics and Management of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (The Netherlands) Summary: Globally networked learning directly engages faculty and the courses they teach as venues for intercultural exchange. However, individual courses do not exist in a vacuum, but are instead part of larger programs with other goals and drivers. As a result, they must be viewed in the broader context of their discipline, of academic affairs generally, and of international programs on each campus. This panel will explore how key stakeholders can participate in the curricular internationalization process, the challenges they face, and some successes they have accomplished. Discussant: Jon Rubin, Director, SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)

          The emergence of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) has created a stir in the higher education world, and the media coverage has been noticed by government departments. Much of this is due to sound bites predicting the ‘end of higher education as we know it’ and predictions that they will ‘tear down the barriers to entry’. This presentation – delivered by Professor Jeff Haywood at the British Council Services for International Education Marketing Conference 2012 – deals with questions such as: ‘What are MOOCs?’, ‘Why such a fuss?’, ‘What place will they take in higher education, further education and schools, if any?’, and ‘Should UK universities and colleges enter this new educational arena, and what benefits and risks does that entail?' This video is for anyone with an interest in international education developments or online education.
