GKA INNO 2021 Virtual – International Congress on Innovation and Education for Development
The internationalization of education as an engine of development
Internationalization constitutes a process of impact for higher education institutions that articulates the functions of teaching, research and extension. Therefore, all the actions aimed at promoting joint global projects and strengthening intercultural competencies, in addition to promoting the visibility of universities, benefit quality, innovation, academic management and knowledge transfer.
In an increasingly digital world, educational institutions adopt and adapt emerging technologies to facilitate processes inherent to internationalization, in such a way that without the need to move abroad they can be developed. In this sense, the alliances between universities promote and facilitate exchange and sharing that make joint work and their positioning visible.
The stakes for internationalization can be viewed from various aspects such as academic mobility, participation in networks, global curricula, joint research and collaborative online learning projects, among others, in which teachers and students are integrated promoting the improvement of educational quality standards.
In this edition of the congress, people are invited to participate with works that show the importance and benefits of a process such as internationalization. How do networks contribute to knowledge management? What research projects provide solutions to common problems? How do they improve digital and intercultural skills in the development of collaborative online projects? What are the stakes in terms of learning outcomes in global learning programs? What internationalization policies are promoted within educational institutions? In addition to those who address the topics of the congress.
