  • We want to convince you and help you understand the utility of systematically collecting data and information at the global, national, and institutional levelsWe participants’ input into the identification of important global research questions to inform the next surveyTo understand participants’ views of important institutional data to collect and to identify and grow the areas of overlap
  • For 65 % of the HEIs it is of high importance and for and additonal 25 % it is of medium importance so for 90% it is a policy to develop or monitor
  • Why ?IAU has been conducting surveys for the past decade to learn more about internationalization and monitor trends at global and regional levels. By asking certain questions as well, we have noted that we can prompt institutions – and in some cases national associations to focus on aspects that they may not have thought of as part of internationalizationIAU has been asked for permission to use our questionnaires as models by several countries and in a number of institutions as they conduct their internal surveys or begin to collect data.It is never easy to construct a good questionnaire – comprehensive to cover everything and short enough to be answered. But over the three surveys, we have realized that you MUST know what your research questions are in order to ask the right questions and thus collect the relevant dataAs more and more frequently we were asked not only about aggregate trends but rather institutional policy questions, we realized the data collection had to shift to be helpful at the institutional level.It was in fact the questionnaire for the 3rdGloboal Survey that prompted a university to ask IAU to assist it in its strategy development which later led to the launching of the ISAS – internationalization strategies advisory service. Goals for this workshop are multiple: We want to convince you and help you understand the utility of systematically collecting data and information at the global, national, and institutional levelsWe participants’ input into the identification of important global research questions to inform the next surveyTo understand participants’ views of important institutional data to collect and to identify and grow the areas of overlapAsk if have seen IAU questionnaire, are data on intlz collected at national levelDo you collect data at instl level on internationalization?

  • Internationalization of HigherEducation: Collecting the Right Data for the Right Purposes Eva Egron-Polak, Madeleine Green International Association of Universities CAIE, 2012 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 26 April, 2012
  • Workshop Outline• Introduction and Goals of the Workshop• Why collect data? Why does IAU collect data?• Key research questions – Global and institutional levels – Difference in approach and purpose• Clarity and consistency of concepts and terms• Discussion groups – your turn to work!• Wrap-up – Reporting back by groups 2 © IAU – April 2012
  • Goals of the Workshop– Improve understanding of the reasons for and the nature of data collection and information gathering at institutional, national, and global levels– Gather input for the identification of key research questions to design the 4th IAU Global Survey (2013)– Be able to identify benefits and possible adverse effects so as to hepd design strategies that are most productive and positive all around– Learn participants’ views about important institutional data to collect and means to do so– Identify and expand the overlaps between global/national and institutional data collection to avoid questionnaire fatigue and gain insights! 3 © IAU – April 2012
  • Why collect data at all?• Internationalization is growing in importance• Evidence-based policy making relies on data• Evaluation, assessment of results require reliable and comparable information• Data are required for monitoring impact at all levels and by many stakeholders• In your nations, do internationalization surveys exist?• At your university, do you collect data regularly? 4 © IAU – April 2012
  • Why IAU collects data?• Internationalization is a policy of growing importance, complexity and multiple dimensions• Need to understand and monitor trends and changes at global, regional and institutional levels• IAU is uniquely placed as a global organization with Members all over the world interested in internationalization• 3 Global Surveys: 2003, 2005 and 2009, 2013• IAU assists HEIs in the design and implementation of policies and strategies with ISAS: Internationalization Strategies Advisory Service Helps HEIs monitor impacts 5 © IAU – April 2012
  • Different levels of data collection = different purposes and uses• Global data = depicts trends, institutions can compare themselves to one another at global or regional levels• National data = allows benchmarking, helps to identify policy gaps, helps advocacy• Institutional data = guide to measuring institutional progress and improvementInterpreting data requires clear goals and clear research questions © IAU – April 2012 6
  • Sample Research QuestionsGlobal/national data – what percentage of enrolled students are mobile?Institutional data – how many and what percentage of enrolled students are mobile and how has this changed over time?Global/national data - which languages are offered; is enrollment rising or decreasing?Institutional data – enrollment trends over time by language course offered 7 © IAU – April 2012
  • Clarity and Consistency ofConcepts and Terms is Essential• Who is a foreign/international student?• Who is a mobile student?• What is an active international agreement?• What defines a course with a global focus?• What constitutes a language requirement?• What counts as international research cooperation? 8 © IAU – April 2012
  • Small Group Discussions on Key Research QuestionsStep 1: Identify – A key global research question – An institutional research question that aligns with the global research questionStep 2: For global question – what indicators will provide answers; what data need to be collected?Step 3: For institutional question identify – Goal pursued – Strategy used to accomplish the goal – Indicator(s) (both qualitative & quantitative) to measure progress – Data to be collected 9 © IAU – April 2012
  • Small Group Discussion (2)• Step 4: Repeat 1-3 until you run out of time• Consider how the various research questions interact and/or overlap• How can the overlap of data collection be maximized for analysis at various levels?• Is the data you need readily available? 10 © IAU – April 2012
  • Reporting Back and Wrap Up• Share your research questions, data to be collected, institutional goals, strategies and indicators• What did you learn through this exercise?• What did IAU learn?• Provide your business card if interested in commenting on IAU 3rd Global Survey questionnaire before 4th Survey is launched 11 © IAU – April 2012
