Khosrowpour, Mehdi; Loch, Karen D. (1993). Global Information Technology Education: Issues and Trends. Series in Global Information Technology Management. This book provides insight into how countries around the world currently define their information science (IS) and information technology (IT) masters degree curriculum, and how they are responding to the challenge of internationalization.

Moll, Marita, Ed. (1997). Tech High: Globalization and the Future of Canadian Education. A Collection of Critical Perspectives on Social, Cultural, and Political Dilemmas.

Kotter, John P. (1995). The New Rules: How To Succeed in Today's Post-Corporate World. The new realities of today's postcorporate world and the new rules for achieving success were examined through a study of the career progress of a sample of 115 individuals who graduated from Harvard in 1974 with a Master's of Business Administration. The members of the study sample completed yearly questionnaires between January 1975 and 1992. The survey responses were analyzed and compared to the findings of six similar studies that were conducted over the same time period but with more diverse groups of individuals. It was discovered that globalization of markets and competition are rendering the old career paths and rules for career success ineffective. It was concluded that to be successful in today's postcorporate world, individuals must adhere to the following rules: do not rely on convention; continue to monitor globalization and its consequences; move toward the small and entrepreneurial and away from the big and bureaucratic; help big business from both outside and inside; lead in addition to just managing; wheel and deal if possible; increase personal competitive drive; and realize that lifelong learning is increasingly necessary for success.

Pinard, Helene (1992). Mutations des roles techniques et formation. Etude documentaire (Changes in the Roles and Education of Technicians. Documentary Study). Drawing from research conducted in 1990-91, this report examines trends affecting the future work of technicians in Quebec, their pre-employment education, and the link between college and work. Part 1 focuses on aspects of the economic, technological, and social environment that will influence the future role of technicians. Economic concerns include the current status of the Quebec economy, globalization of the world's economy, economic trends toward growth and the domination of commerce and service industries, and emerging motives and values. The technological/technical environment is examined in terms of information technologies, biotechnology, energy management, recycling, innovations in materials engineering, and the diffusion of technological advances. Social issues include the growing gap between rich and poor, the social conscience of the business world, and the development of an information society. Part 2 examines changes in the productive sector, including those related to organizational dynamics and the professional structure of the labor force. Part 3 considers the role of technicians and the competencies expected of them, including creativity, a sense of personal autonomy and responsibility, and the capacity to integrate information, transfer it across disciplines, work as a team member, learn, and adapt. Finally, part 4 looks toward the future, addressing scientific and technological trends, the globalization of human history, the relationship between educational and career changes, and influences on the ethical order. Concluding comments emphasize the cultural, ethical, educational, and socioeconomic questions that should be addressed in conceptualizing the role of technicians in the year 2000.   [More]  Descriptors: Economic Factors, Educational Economics, Ethics, Foreign Countries

Howley, Craig (1996). The Rural Experience of Nation-Building: Implications for Educational Research and School Improvement in the Latest Era of "Globalization.". This paper explores changes needed in the focus and commitment of educational research to better reflect issues relevant to rural schools and their communities. Historically, educational researchers have focused on national or cosmopolitan concerns in efforts to develop widely applicable procedures for school improvement. However, improving rural schools also meant reshaping and redirecting them into a national system–of schooling, trade, politics, and culture–that has ensured the depopulation of rural areas and a failed rural economy. As the 21st century approaches, it appears that the major educational project of the 19th century, nation-building, is over and the sovereignty of nations is being undermined by globalization. The shift in focus and values that accompanies globalization thus undermines the purpose of mass education as well, leading to a need for new commitments in educational research. To focus on issues applicable to rural schools and their communities, educational research must consider local concerns such as attachment to rural places; the relationship between school and community sustainability; and the cultivation of appropriate local meanings, knowledge, and commitments. The paper also suggests that for rural researchers to change their focus they need to read rural sociology, rural community development, history, and fiction about rural places; be genuinely interested in rural matters; live or work in a rural community; and bring a critical framework to the research experience from their dual roles as educator and researcher.  Contains 17 references and a list of recommended books related to rural educational research.   [More]  Descriptors: Economic Change, Educational Change, Educational Needs, Educational Philosophy

King, Dan L. (1997). The Challenges of Globalizing Higher Education in a Parochial Policy-Making Environment. This study examined the extent to which issues related to internationalization were considered in institutional policy development at universities, along with the underlying reasons why such issues were considered. A written and telephone survey was conducted with trustees from seven state-supported universities in four states. Two state legislators from each state with an interest in higher education were also interviewed. The results indicated that little actual trustee business time was spent on policy-making related to internationalization. However, five of the seven trustees interviewed indicated that they spent a moderate to greater than moderate amount of time discussing institutional globalization outside of board meetings. All eight state legislators indicated that economic development interests were a primary rationale for internationalization. However, six of the legislators indicated that while universities had been quite effective in connecting globalization endeavors to economic development initiatives, they had been significantly less effective in demonstrating the benefits of internationalization for intellectual or cultural benefit. Suggestions for universities on how to educate policymakers about the benefits of internationalization are included.
