Year of Publication: 

The presenter will discuss the advantages and limitations of using new technologies as a tool for internationalizing higher education, with focus on efforts aimed towards the internationalization of the curriculum. She will highlight the important conceptual differences existent between international and transnational education, and will demonstrate that once these concepts are defined, the debate over the use of new information and communication technologies is purely conceptual and philosophical.
