RISHII: Illuminating Paths to Global Education

In a world where borders are becoming increasingly blurred and interconnectedness is the norm, the need for internationalization in education has never been more pressing. Recognizing this imperative, the RISHII program (Resources for Internationalisation of Higher Education Institutions in India) emerges as a beacon of innovation and collaboration. Rooted in the EU Strategy on India and fueled by a commitment to equity and excellence, RISHII aims to revolutionize the Indian higher education landscape through the Internationalisation of Curriculum (IoC). This comprehensive program not only equips educators with essential skills but also fosters a culture of inclusivity, ensuring that every student benefits from global perspectives and opportunities. Let us embark on a journey through the intricate details of RISHII, exploring its transformative potential and the ripple effects it promises to create.

Foundations of RISHII:
The genesis of RISHII lies in the pressing need to align Indian higher education with global standards and expectations. The EU Strategy on India, signed on November 20, 2018, underscores the significance of internationally recognizable degrees, emphasizing the pivotal role of IoC in achieving this objective. RISHII, therefore, sets out to address this imperative by focusing on management approaches and strategies essential for planning and implementing curriculum internationalization. Central to its mission is the enhancement of communication and collaboration among stakeholders, paving the way for holistic transformation in Indian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).

Core Objectives of RISHII:
At the heart of RISHII lies a commitment to Internationalisation-FOR-ALL, encapsulated in its overarching objectives. By developing tools, resources, procedures, and mechanisms for curriculum internationalization, RISHII aims to empower Indian partners to achieve comprehensive IoC. Through strategic planning and globally open pedagogy, participants are equipped to navigate the complexities of internationalization, ensuring that these principles permeate every facet of higher education.

Capacity Building in Human Resources:
Key to the success of RISHII is its focus on capacity building in human resources. Recognizing that faculty and non-academic staff are pivotal agents of change, the program offers specialized training in IoC at two levels. Participants emerge as IoC Champions, equipped not only to implement internationalization initiatives but also to inspire continuous professional development in others. Furthermore, RISHII fosters collaboration through Institutional Internationalisation Teams (IITs), harnessing collective expertise to drive institutional transformation.

Capacity Building in Strategic Planning:
Strategic planning lies at the crux of RISHII's approach, enabling Indian partners to develop robust institutional plans for curriculum internationalization. By instilling a culture of ownership and collaboration, the program empowers HEIs to chart their own course towards global integration. Through strategic foresight and collective action, RISHII ensures that every institution emerges with enhanced capacity and a renewed commitment to internationalization.

Equity and Democratisation of Higher Education:
Central to RISHII's ethos is the belief that internationalization should be inclusive and accessible to all. By focusing on Curriculum Internationalisation, the program aligns with the goals of achieving equity and democratisation in higher education. Regardless of background or socio-economic status, every student is afforded the opportunity to benefit from global perspectives and experiences, thereby fostering a more equitable and inclusive society.

Impact and Future Prospects:
As RISHII continues to unfold, its impact reverberates across Indian higher education, ushering in a new era of global engagement and excellence. Through its innovative approaches and collaborative ethos, the program promises to transform not only individual institutions but the entire educational landscape. As we look towards the future, RISHII stands as a testament to the power of collaboration and the enduring promise of education to transcend boundaries and unlock human potential.

In the journey towards global education, RISHII emerges as a guiding light, illuminating paths to excellence and inclusivity. Through its comprehensive approach to curriculum internationalization, the program empowers institutions to embrace diversity, foster collaboration, and unlock new opportunities for growth and innovation. As we stand on the threshold of a new era in education, let us embrace the vision of RISHII and work together to build a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
