Regionality and Globalization in the Caribbean Context
Cloud created by:
3 December 2010
This cloud poses the question as to the relevance of regionalism in the context of teriary level education in the English-speaking Caribbean and the effect of globalisation with particular reference to the University of the West Indies as a regional institution. The University of the West indies is now more than 60 years old and boasts an unequalled record for uniting the aspirations of the small Caribbean populace of just about 8 million spread over an archipelago that spans 3000 miles. There is a sense that UWI having been originally constructed as a regional university hs become less regional over time.
The questions posed in this cloud are:
- Has the University of the West Indies become less of a regional institution over time?
- What is causing this perception of less and less regionalism/
- Is a regional university a good thing?
- What can be done to foster regionlism?
We welcome comments on any of these questions/
