Developing Institutional Language Policy

Developing Institutional Language Policy by Nemira Mačianskienė, Version 2011, WG4 R developing institutional language policy.pdf (0.2 MB) - Higher education institutions face challenges set by Bologna process, the implementation of which requires creating conditions for language learning and intercultural competence acquisition. Although higher education institutions in Lithuania maintain different and in a way promiscuous approaches to the role of HEI in the development of students‘ linguistic and intercultural competences, but a certain institutional policy with regard to language learning and teaching has inevitably been formed on the institutional level, though not always defined by normative documents. The aim of the research is to summarise the development of language policy in HEIs on the basis of the practice of European higher education institutions. The research applied the findings of ENLU (European Network for the Promotion of Language Learning among All Undergraduates) and MOLAN (Network for the Exchange of Information about Good Practices that Serve to Motivate Language Learners), performing comparative and content analysis. The descriptive statistics and analysis of research into the practical organisation of language learning and teaching provided at VMU served as the basis aiming to identify preconditions for institutional language policy formation.

Language Policies in European Higher Education Area: Babes-Bolyai University - a Case Study by Roxana‐Maria Gâz, WG4 R LANGUAGE POLICIES EHEA case babes Bolyay RO.pdf (0.4 MB) - Languages are an important part of our lives. They do not only help us
communicate with one another, but they also contribute to our self‐improvement,
they help the development of the economy and of the business environment.
Therefore, universities and governments have to work on promoting languages,
language learning and teaching. This article focuses largely on the language
policies of the European Union, on the European higher education area, and
particularly on the actions taken in order to implement the recommendations made
by the European institutions in what concerns language learning. Furthermore,
the article presents the preliminary results of a survey carried out among the
Romanian students of Babeş‐Bolyai University the purpose of which was to see
their satisfaction as to the language teaching and the offer of languages within their
university. Therefore, this was a good way to see whether the European Union
recommendation on the teaching and learning of foreign languages were
implemented in Romania and in higher education.

Does University Quality Drive International Student Flows? by Linda Van Bouwel, Reinhilde Veugelers, Version 2010, WG4 R Does university quality drive international student flows.pdf (0.3 MB) - We examine whether the (research) quality of a country’s higher education
system drives macro-flows of foreign tertiary students in Europe. We use
various measures on the quality of a country’s higher education system in an
extended gravity model. We find that quality has a positive and significant
effect on the size and direction of flows of students exchanged between 18
European countries.

Assessing Scientific Mobility Dynamics and Impact: drawing on the potential of electronic CV databases

Assessing Scientific Mobility Dynamics and Impact: drawing on the potential of electronic CV databases by André Pirralha, Margarida Fontes, José Assis, WG4 R Assessing Scientific Mobility Dynamics and Impact.pdf (0.3 MB) - The mobility of scientists has become, in the last few years, a hot topic in the context of highly skilled migrations. Although it is not a new phenomenon - since historically these movements have always been present - there is evidence of the fast growth of scientific mobility as we move towards an increasingly globalised world. Along this process, the asymmetries between countries in terms of mobility flows became more evident. However, the early emphasis on the loss of highly skilled resources by less advanced regions – coined in the “brain drain” concept - is being increasingly replaced by the “brain circulation” approach, which rejects the idea of unidirectional flows and addresses scientific mobility as a complex phenomenon, whose effective role on knowledge production and transmission is still far from being understood. Despite the growing relevance of scientific mobility, researchers are confronted with a lack of reliable data on mobility flows. This led to a search for new methods that would permit to capture the complexity and multidimensionality of the phenomenon. Since mobility increasingly consists of a sequence of events that take place along a scientist‟s career (rather than a one-off move), the analysis of scientists‟ trajectories emerged as a promising methodology, and the Curriculum Vitae (CV) as a rich source of information. In addition, because CVs report career evolution and outputs, they could equally provide information enabling the assessment of mobility impacts.
However, CV‟s have a number of problems, concerning data format, contents and data treatment, that have so far limited their usefulness. The recent introduction of electronic CV databases, which present information in a standardized format and in an electronic support, may contribute to overcome at least some of these problems. The objective of this paper is exactly to use a novel electronic CV database - the Portuguese DeGóis Platform - to explore the possibility of building meaningful mobility indicators and of using them to understand scientific mobility dynamics, as well as to address the impact of mobility upon knowledge production and circulation, both at an individual and at an organizational or country level.

Academic Finns Abroad – Challenges of International Mobility and the Research Career

Academic Finns Abroad – Challenges of International Mobility and the Research Career by Jussi Kulonpalo, Version 2007, WG4 R Academic Finns Abroad.pdf (1.4 MB) - The report presents a survey on the motivating and discouraging factors of Finnish
researchers’ international mobility and recent general trends of researcher mobility in
Finland. Special attention is paid to young researchers as well as to researchers with a family
and the specifi c challenges they face in relation to international mobility and pursuing a
research career in Finland.
The statistical analysis of the survey data reveals that Finnish researchers are a highly
heterogeneous group, and no signifi cant researcher mobility patterns is visible as such from
the data. The lack of general-level statistical data prevents making broad comparisons to
fi nd out whether researcher mobility in fact has been decreasing over time, as some statistics
suggest. The Finnish research sector and researchers’ career trajectories are growing
increasingly diverse, which calls for more fl exible and responsive funding instruments
and services that recognise researchers’ individual needs. Accordingly, from the individual
researcher’s point of view, the available research funding instruments for international
mobility do not always meet the researcher’s needs.
The study shows that the main challenges to Finnish researchers’ international mobility
are largely family- and funding-related. Spouse employment, having children and fi nancial
matters were seen as the main obstacles to mobility by the respondents and these issues had
also caused most problems to those respondents who had been internationally mobile.
On a general level, the international mobility patterns of Finnish young researchers tend to
follow those of previous generations. The United States and western European countries
are still the most popular choices of destination for mobile Finnish researchers.

International Mobility Patterns Of Researchers And Their Determinants by Linda Ana Carine Van Bouwel, Version 2010, WG4 R International mobility of researchers.pdf (0.2 MB) - With the conversion of most industrialized countries to the knowledge economy, worries about the alleged
brain drain of researchers to the United States are growing. We study the international mobility decisions and
their determinants of a sample of foreign PhD holders who came to the US to obtain a PhD in economics. We
find that around 50% settle permanently in the US after their PhD. Of the remaining 50%, one third returns to
the home country and two thirds take up a job in a third country. Graduates from a top university are more
likely to move internationally, as are men.

of student Mobility with the help of questionnaires. Three quarters of the
responders were male; most of them participated in the Erasmus program for
studies and one third of them for placements. From the statistical elaboration of the
answered questionnaires, the most important issues that came to light were the
language preparation and the information/support in matters of accommodation as
well as the functionality of the ECTS system. However, a great percentage of the
responders feel “satisfied” with the recognition of the courses and half of them
associate their participation to the program with the extension of their studies’
period. Finding a solution to the aforementioned issues demands of combined
actions undertaken by the National Authorities and Agencies, the Higher Education
Institutions and the relevant Departments, but the financial support of those actions
remains always the “dark side” of this matter.
