Last week marked a turning point in my role as a visiting scholar at the Université De Montréal. It was a privilege to work with my dear friend Olivier Begin-Caouette and to meet his colleague Alexandre Beaupré-Lavallée and excellent doctoral students. Learning from their largely quantitative approach was a good challenge and this allowed me to move ahead on two of our comparative research papers – four country studies on the external activities of professor (comparing – a) Croatia, China, Argentina and Canada b) Germany, Kazakhstan, Russia and Canada). Watch for these papers in an upcoming
Higher Education Policy special issue.
