  • Download Das deutsche Bildungssystem mit grenzüberschreitendem by Patricia Lowey PDF

    By Patricia Lowey

    Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Interkulturelle Pädagogik, word: 2, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, 27 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die aktuelle Internationalisierung und zunehmende Öffnung der Märkte über die Grenzen hinaus wird durch die bestehende Globalisierungstendenz besonders gefördert. Durch die Schaffung eines zusammengehörenden Binnenmarktes schreitet die Integration Europas voran. Forderungen, dass der Bildungsmarkt der Internationalisierung angepasst wird, können die Uneinigkeit seitens der zu beschreitenden Wege nicht verhindern. Die Strategie und Durchführung der Maßnahmen, die zur Erreichung eines sowohl europäischen, als auch internationalen Bildungsmarktes führen, sind nicht einheitlich festgelegt. Nachfolgend wird die Notwendigkeit der Internationalisierung im Bildungsbereich dargestellt. Hinzu kommen Darstellungen der Möglichkeiten für eine weitergehende Öffnung des Bildungsmarktes. Zudem soll ein Überblick zum Thema Internationalisierung im Bildungsbereich, ohne zu sehr in die Tiefe zu gehen, vermittelt werden. Die Notwendigkeit einer Vertiefung einzelner Aspekte ist sicherlich sinnvoll, um letztendlich ein schlüssiges Gesamtkonzept zu bieten. Dieses kann jedoch nicht im Rahmen einer Hausarbeit erfolgen. Da die Internationalisierungstendenz am stärksten im Hochschulbereich vorangegangen ist und die Notwendigkeit der grenzüberschreitenden Öffnung von den Beteiligten weitgehend erkannt ist, beschäftigen sich die folgenden Überlegungen auf den Hochschulbereich. Im Vergleich zu schulischen Einrichtungen ist die größere Autonomie der Hochschulen ein Vorteil und erleichtert eine weitergehende Internationalisierung. Im Rahmen dieser Hausarbeit werden Schulen nicht so viel Beachtung finden. Dennoch können die Erkenntnisse einer marktlichen Koordination teilweise analog verwendet werden.
