Title：Critical Reflections on the Impacts of Globalization on Internationalization of Higher Education
Abstract：As a result of the rapidly globalizing world of disintegrating country borders and supranational network of capital and knowledge, the pace of transnational education is increasing. Transnational education is a phenomenon that is part of the globalization of trade in goods and services and its emergence is fuelled by the inclusion of higher education as an industry under the framework of the General Agreement on Trade in Service (GATS).

Title: Technology Education keeping society current
Abstract: Keeping pace with the continual change is a daunting task. Especially for those in fields such education, which are not known for being dynamic and nimble. Technology is influencing us, just as much as we are influencing technology. Yet how do we stay in control, remain current, and be leaders and drivers of innovation? This paper will outline how New Zealand has developed a technology education curriculum, national subject association and support structures which link education with industry and the community, to support the learners of tomorrow.
