Upon joining of Republic of Korea to the AIMS Programme in 2016, in an effort to make meaningful contributions to the sustainable development of AIMS programme, the government of the Republic of Korea, in collaboration with Korean Council for University Education (KCUE) and Higher Education Policy Research Institute (HEPRI) at Korea University, wished to launch a collaborative project between SEAMEO RIHED and the Republic of Korea to investigate the effects of the AIMS Programme on participating students’ development and future career.

The initial proposal for this project was presented in the plenary session at the 10th AIMS Review Meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and was well received by the AIMS participating countries and universities. As the result, SEAMEO RIHED and the government of the Republic of Korea discussed and agreed to conduct a workshop where all the AIMS governments and higher education institutions representatives and experts who wish to participate in the project gather and discuss how to finalise a research design, survey instrument and implementation plan. The Open Forum and Experts Meeting were convened on 2-3 February 2017 at the Office of Higher Education Thailand to gather relevant inputs.

At the Open Forum, 70 participants from AIMS countries, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand; higher education institutions from Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Thailand; partner organisations such as the ASEAN University Network (AUN), the British Council Thailand, Campus France Thailand, Nuffic Neso Thailand, and UNESCO Bangkok; experts and organisers attended. The Open Forum explored the purpose of measuring exchange students’ experiences and learning outcomes, multi-cultural competence, shared previous experiences in the monitoring of AIMS and Campus Asia Programmes, and discussed on the issues and challenges in implementing a survey in the multi-national context.

At the Experts Meeting, 28 participants from AIMS countries, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, partner organisations, experts and organisers attended to deliberate on the details of the proposed evaluation instrument. The Meeting agreed that the adoption of the evaluation instrument would be on a voluntary basis. The results of the evaluation would be beneficial to study the exchange students’ experiences and outcomes. The revised evaluation instrument by the research team would be tabled at the upcoming 2nd AIMS Steering Committee Meeting in July 2017, Japan.
