The internationalisation of higher education has increasingly been institutionalized as an organization-wide strategy. It is no longer a peripheral strategy; for most universities and colleges, internationalisation is now a suite of processes that are positioned to influence multiple layers of teaching, learning and research. This presentation examines the changing meaning of ‘international’ in the shifting processes and practices of internationalisation. This research has uncouple internationalisation from its business and economic motivations, analyzing instead what the definitions and models of internationalisation says, and how they say it, examining the knowledge made available for researching and implementing internationalisation policies and university-wide plans. I hope the conversation following the presentation can further explore the premise that internationalisation has entered a “post” era and what are some of the implications.
