In the next of in a series of blogposts introduciing the Study Tour team, over to you David Law...
Compare and contrast: a familiar format for examination questions and
one that serves well. If you want to understand the context in which
you work it helps to see things ‘from the outside’. This is a primary
reason why AUA runs study
trips to other HE systems. We need comparison with others.
On this trip I will be interested, in particular, in two questions.
Firstly, how do leading institutions in the Netherlands understand and
implement the internationalisation of higher education? Secondly, what
is it like being a British
student in Dutch HE?
As the Principal Editor of the AUA’s Perspectives journal, I
want also to see whether we can spread our wings a bit. Perhaps there
will be interest from Dutch colleagues in submitting articles? Are there
lessons that we can learn
from each other’s experience of policy development?
