Strategies of Selected HEIs in Addressing Challenges and Issues Inherent to Student Mobility

Abstract

Internationalization initiatives in student mobility of selected higher education institutions (HEIs) in Davao region, Philippines certainly set the ground for an internationalization effort to cope with the challenges of globalization. However, HEIs being an open system is not immune to challenges and issues which might put the internationalization efforts of HEIs in student mobility at risk and in the end might result in limited planning and long term policies on regional internationalization process. As per experiences of the respondents in this study, the concrete actions for change in order to manage the challenges and issues inherent to student mobility includes non-academic endeavor: providing support in terms of budget and infrastructure development and academic endeavors : aligning the curriculum to meet international standards, strengthening the curriculum to meet international standards, establishing linkages and collaborations with foreign HEIs, aligning school calendar between two HEIs, teamwork, and sharing of responsibility. Implications of these experiences to theory, policy, and present practices of Philippine HEIs are also discussed.
