Sammanfattning

Internationalisation is the interdependence and interconnectedness between countries influenced by globalization and digitalization "that no country or sector or institution is immune from including higher education" (Bellinger 2015). Three challenges has particularly been noted, the critical voice of INDIVIDUAL universities has been and is stifled instead of strengthened as a result of globalization. Secondly. low quality education has resulted in widening the gap between socioeconomic classes - creating discrimination among developing societies’ students and finally, the loss of cultural or national identity. Fourth industrial revolution or 4.0. is here and means that data is the new gold. Data example In Africa can help build safer cities, stronger economies, healthy populations. For example, Hepta analytics (Kenyan/Rwanda) – Use Agricultural data with sattelite imaging to calculate planting times. Democratic Republic of Congo use an app that was trained identifiying diseased plants is used to provide warnings of disease in banana leaves, and the non-profit company Harambee - Help people connecting to work geographical and personal preference data. Some common challenges include ICT infrastructure might be too expensive for many African universities to afford and is dependent on underlying digital maturity and pre-existing infrastructure of countries including skills and digital literacy.
