INTERNATIONALIZING CURRICULUM WORKSHOP (INMP): NOV. 5-6

All CCIE college members are invited to a FREE workshop on Internationalizing the Curriculum, SEPTEMBER 5-6 at Whittier College. This program begins the second decade of the community college INMP program. This is a specific program to help ALL faculty in ALL disciplines internationalize their curriculum. At the Fall Workshop there is a chance to talk about important international issues, have a presentation by experts in the field, and meet with others who will be involved in the Spring simulation.

The program will begin at 9:00 on Friday, September 5 and will conclude at 3:00 pm. The day includes continental breakfast and lunch. The programs continues on Saturday, September 6 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and also includes a continental breakfast and lunch.

PARTICIPATION IS FREE, BUT SPACE IS LIMITED. YOU MUST REGISTER IN ADVANCE. The INMP is an on-line simulation of international negotiation that allows community college faculty from across the curriculum to infuse an international perspective into their classes. http://www.icons.umd.edu/inp/index.html Students negotiate on a range of international issues selected by the faculty members so that they can support the substance of their classes. Each participating classroom adopts the role of a different country and negotiates from the point of view of that country. At the conclusion of the project, students will be familiar with the culture, economy, history and politics of other countries, the interrelationship of nations, the art of negotiation, and with the Internet. Community college faculty from all disciplines are invited to participate and former students acknowledge that this was an exceptional learning experience as they not only learn more about current issues and negotiations in general, but that they become more aware of the ways in which such issues affect them personally. For additional information, contact Rosalind

EMPLOYERS WANT STUDENTS WITH INTERNATIONAL LITERACY SKILLS

Among the findings concerning learning outcomes on which employers want colleges to place more emphasis are global issues (67 percent), intercultural competence (71 percent), and intercultural knowledge of global issues (67 percent). While not specifically cited, there is a clear link to international education. Related to the survey, AAC&U also released a policy paper, The Quality Imperative, which calls on academe and policymakers to commit to civic, ethical and cross- cultural learning for every degree program and every student.

HONG KONG SECONDARY EDUCATION REFORM & U.S. UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION PANEL HELD AT FOOTHILL COLLEGE

Foothill College sponsored a Hong Kong Secondary Education Reform and U.S. Undergraduate Admission Panel on May 6. The panel introduced changes to HKDSE (Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education) which will be administrered in 2010 to assess the attainment of Secondary 6 students. This reform may have a significant impact on admission and transfer of Hong Kong students to U.S. colleges and universities. While the new HKDSE is now acceptable in lieu of GCE A level for applications to UK universities, no admission standard has been put in place for Hong Kong students wishing to study in the U.S. Many colleges and universities have been able to accept the HKCEE diploma offered after Secondary 5 as proof of high school completion, which was a competitive admission advantage allowing Hong Kong students to start their undergraduate studies in the U.S. earlier. With the phasing out of the HKCEE, students finishing Secondary 5 will not be receiving a diploma until HKDSE at the end of Secondary 6. This change may significantly affect the country and type of institution that Hong Kong students will choose for undergraduate study, as well as their admission qualifications for transfer.

CIEE PUBLICATION: 32ND OCCASIONAL PAPER: “STUDY ABROAD AND ITS TRANSFORMATIVE POWER

CIEE announces the publication of the 32nd Occasional Paper titled “Study Abroad and its Transformative Power.” The papers address issues of interest to academics and professionals involved with a wide variety of activities in the field. Written by Gerald W. Fry, R. Michael Paige, Jae-Eun Jon, Jon Dillow and Kyoung-Ah Nam this paper shows that among nearly 700 respondents that study abroad is indeed a transformative experience for many students. Moreover, even when it isn’t “transformative,” it has a major impact on the lives of participants. It affects how they see and engage the world, their values, their friendships, their careers, and education. Study abroad offers each student a personal learning experience. Students return more confident in their ability to cope, more capable of dealing with uncertainty, and with a greater sense of purpose than before they left. It’s not only what they find out about the world and those around them that’s important. Most importantly, this paper clearly shows that study abroad should fit into the collegiate educational experience as “front and center.” The question in higher education curriculum development should be not whether or not study abroad fits in, but rather how to make it fit—to ensure that it’s part of the overall educational experience. Study abroad works. It is for many, and can be for more, one of the best—and for many the best—part of a collegiate education. http://www.ciee.org/home/research-publications/documents/CIEEOccasionalPapers32.pdf

Educators worldwide are increasingly recognizing the potential for community colleges to serve as engines of social mobility, according to a new article in Inside Higher Ed. According to Tully Cornick, executive director of Higher Education for Development, as quoted in the article, "There is a recognition around the world, and it manifests itself somewhat differently [in different countries], that community colleges, as one element of the higher education system, have something very significant to offer to segments of the population."

CUYAMACA IRAQI REFUGEES

Jennifer Gonzalez, from Chronicle of Higher Education Article on June 13, 2010: “Iraqi Refugees, Desperately Seeking English” profiles Cuyamaca College. The the area, the number of ESL students, at least 85% of whom are refugees from Iraq has triped since 2006. The problem is the economic budget crisis which is forcing to cut millions from the operating budget. As a community college, “Dr. Miles, the Chancellor” says it is in our fabric to meet the coummunity’s needs.” One strategy is to offer more noncredit ELS classes, increase credit class size. Still students are being turned away.
