Abstract

 

Having been involved in Thai education for more than six decades as a stakeholder and an observer, Fulbright Thailand has witnessed numerous endeavors in the development of education at national, organizational and individual levels. Many efforts are innovative and praiseworthy yet they are often scattered all over. As a stakeholder, we experience the unconnected dots that make education exchanges much less profitable or effective when it could otherwise highly generate benefits to worth the while of the invested resources, energy, and the education system itself. As an observer, we see the fragmentations of sound policies and practices across the education realm, resulting in the loss of synergy to move toward our shared vision to enhance the quality of learners for healthy and contributive survival in the complex 21st Century. From both perspectives, we conclude that the common challenges in education management in Thailand reflect our weaknesses in ‘linking the dots’ and integrating the concept of links into our working system. In other words, we are calling for more ‘lintegration’ in our education system to heighten the quality of learners and stakeholders.

 

This paper focuses on education exchange programs as a case study on lintegration. Experiences and lessons shared could hopefully be applied to other missions of education institutions as well as other kinds of organizations.
