Comments/Description
    Education and training have always been two of the most important factors in personal and societal development. Today and in the future it will be the internatioal dimension of such activities that contributes added value in the building of European communities that span borders and will be instrumental in solving the European and global problems of tomorrow. Reaching beyond mobility programs based on bilateral cooperation agreements between universities, more and more European VET institutions, companies offering international traineeships, and institutions of higher education are promoting their programs to persons coming from different countries and having a different cultural background. The increasing flow of persons working in other countries than the country of origin shows another necessity to adapt local ways of delivering knowledge to a strategy that includes cultural specification in approaches to learning. Only a few institutions have realized that working with persons from different countries and cultures is just the first step of a new era in the internationalization of training and education as part of the intensified European integration. Very rarely have such institutions recognized the fact that as values, attitudes and behaviour vary a cross cultural borders, so does the way learners perceive, process and present information. What they have only experienced are inefficiencies in teaching and learning, both on an individual and an institutional level.
