Knowledge Drives Economic Development
. . . important
impact comes from skills literacy
  • Knowledge is an all important driver of economic
  • Not just about putting more highly qualified
    people in to higher paying jobs
  • Proven impact on economic development comes from
    increasing skills literacy mid higher level
    skills are not just about degrees indications
    show quite the opposite (University of British
    Colombia Literacy Survey)
  • New skills training knowledge dissemination of
    economic relevance need to reach larger firms,
    private sector, SMEs, micro-enterprise,
    individuals and the unemployed
    traditional sectors (agriculture, small
    manufacturing, services, crafts, tourism, etc)

    to help economies be more productive and
  • More highly skilled workforce isnt just for big
    firms and government
  • Need to turn countrys human resources into
    strategic advantage

Lifelong Learning
Changing Student Profiles
  • Adults with tertiary qualifications increased
    from 22 to 41 over last 25 years in OECD
  • Over 40 of undergraduates in US 30 of
    Canadas undergraduate students are over 25 yrs
  • Yr 2000 over 20 of first year university
    students were over 27 yrs in
    Australia, NZ, Denmark, Norway Sweden
  • Lifelong learning attracting new learners more
    diversified older and
    part time students

ACE 2002
Lifelong Learning
  • Developing a Lifelong Learning Framework
  • Requires fundamental changes to the education
  • HEIs need to adapt change Missions,
    pedagogical processes, accommodate different
    learning models (formal education / on-the-job
    training / at home learners)
  • The role of technology can expand access and
    change the nature of learning facilitating new
    modes of delivery (e.g. distance / online
    learning) and mixed modes
  • The framework will accommodate the constant
    updating of skills, to develop a highly qualified
    and flexible labor force with new sets of skills
    and competencies
  • Becoming increasingly important in Asian markets

Cross Border Investment
HEI Campuses In Foreign Countries
  • Since Yr 2000
  • Laureate (previously Sylvan International
    Universities) invested in Spain, France,
    Switzerland, Mexico, Chile, Ecuador, Panama,

    bringing in over 1.25 billion or 2.4 billion in
  • International student numbers fell by 5.3 in
  • China made up 25 of UK 2004 international
    student numbers
  • UK feedback - Reasons for changing trends in
    China include
    the perceived
    improvement of institutional quality in China
    - more appealing to study at home

    the Chinese labor market no
    longer putting such a large premium on foreign

    local and
    foreign qualifications, joint foreign degrees and
    local work experience count for greater

    Certified training and LL/Lng programs

International student preferences and
destinations are changing
  • Greater competition from LAC, EU, Central America
  • Partial international study can satisfy cultural
    immersion needs
  • Universities used to hold the high ground
    systems of education, training and lifelong
    learning are demanding programs of greater
    economic relevance both university and
    non-university tertiary

  • the educational, social and commercial gains
    from University / TAFE partnerships in cross
    border trade in education services are yet to be

And are AID and TRADE talking to each other?
  • AID needs TRADE in selected projects to convert
    Technical Assistance in to downstream
  • TRADE in some cases can leverage alternative
    downstream resources that governments can no
    longer afford to carry

Demand For Greater Program Diversity
  • Employers in region requiring educational
    credentials or certified training important
    for job market
  • Employers seeking greater flexibility of program
    choice want training and job
    preparation for jobs that exist and improved
    competencies for career enhancement
  • Typical local career providers can include
  • Professional schools accounting, language
  • Business schools
  • Engineering schools
  • Training in ICTs low / med / high-end
  • Industry schools (tourism agri-business
    forestry fishing etc)

Local Context Is All Important
  • What is the role of government enabler or
  • Local education policy objectives and what is
    the effectiveness of local policies and
  • Adequacy of student financial support
  • Understanding of economic and social development
  • demand for fee-paying programs

    demand, supply gaps in public provision
    relevance of
    current programs
    needs of traditional
  • Historic educational traditions, social
    cultural values
    or in past political ideology
    (Africa, CEE, India)

Changing Business Models
  • Changing modus operandi Public goes Commercial
    / Private new forms of competition
  • Shift from venue-driven to market-driven
    delivery systems
  • Market demand for flexible delivery options
    (evenings weekends distance learning use of
    new learning technologies)
  • The campus-based to web-based Continuum, is
    changing models
    academic and investment confidence
    in e-learning is growing 
  • From isolated university models to linked HEI
    courses QA and credit
    transfer systems
    options and career pathways
  • Separation of institutional management and
    academic power of faculty different control
    over business administration

Distance Education
  • Tertiary distance education fastest growing
    sub-sector represents at
    least 15 of all higher educations students
  • Asia has 3.5 m students (2000)
  • 30 of all tertiary courses in Russia are
  • LAC has over 1 million tertiary distance

Cross border education opportunities
  • Internationalization provides easy and low risk
    stepping-off point

    for customizing and
    disseminating new types of knowledge and skills
  • program partnerships - for improving
    curriculum content, development research
  • opportunities for student and faculty exchange
    plus joint programs that accommodate cultural
  • adding value by facilitating transferability
    of credits and qualifications (Are the
    advantages of having a qualifications framework
    at home, being optimized?)
  • Internationalization can lead to other
    commercial initiatives

PPP Example - Blended Campus/On-line Joint Degree
  • Stevens Institute of Technology - China Hybrid
  • 1/3 taught online by Stevens faculty / 1/3 taught
    by Chinese faculty using Stevens curriculum / 1/3
    taught by Stevens faculty onsite in Beijing
  • Tuition - Revenues split 50-50 between schools
  • Chinese pay for classrooms, Chinese faculty,
    local software and workstations
  • Stevens pays for Stevens faculty, travel, housing
  • Stevens is university of record holds student
    transcripts and history
  • Chinese manage classrooms, logistics and Ministry
    of Education
  • Partner Institutions in China
  • Beijing Institute of Technology Shanghai Jiao
    Tong University Central University of
    Finance Economics

For International Consulting . . .
  • Local governments are World Bank clients
  • Local market will hold the greatest power and
    influence when deciding who to use so it
    bodes well for those that Internationalize and
    get on the ground first!
  • Decision making local experience is important
    and program affiliations the quickest way to
    obtain local experience support
  • Private higher education providers
    to be underestimated
    tend to
    respond more quickly to joint initiatives
    strong reputations
    for quality relevance of local programs, with
    high employability of graduates
  • Use of donor/ grant/ trust funds to assist with
  • Promote successes publish case studies
