This workshop was entitled 1st Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies (DIES) Training Course on “Management of Internationalization” in Indonesia conducted in the Meeting Room (RS), UI Depok Campus.
This activity aims to provide education and increase the capacity and qualifications of staff who hold the function of managing universities internationalization programs in Indonesia by inviting competent speakers from Australia and Germany. With increasing capacity of Human Resources (academic and non-academic staff). through internationalization, the medium of internationalization can be better prepared for students to face the global world. In addition, with the increasing number of international students at a university, it is expected that there will be increased interaction between domestic and foreign students, in order to improve the quality of students.
One indicator of university readiness in internationalization is seen from the number of foreign students studying, international publications, and international cooperation carried out. For this reason, the academics of a university need to understand the process of internationalization management, so that the implementation of internationalization can occur smoothly and effectively.
One of the speakers hoped that internationalization would encourage the improvement of the quality and reputation of universities to be better. So this activity is very useful in the future.
