WESTERN NOMADIC DISCOURSE AND THE DISCOVERY OF THE OTHER

Investing in university education has spread widely in Palestine and all counties around the world. ‎This is due to several causes, such as the enormous increase in the number of students, and the ‎growth in the number of students with various academic degrees, which resulted in increasing the ‎number of public and private universities, in addition to the institutes specialized in various ‎professional studies. Many of these universities seek to develop and raise their educational ‎competencies. Therefore, they started resorting to the so-called networking between universities. ‎Consequently, the study aimed to identify the reality of networking processes between universities ‎from the point of view of the teaching staff in the universities of Jerusalem and the West Bank. The ‎study also aims to point out the reality of teaching and academic exchange, the scientific research, ‎community service and the continued education from the point of view of the teaching staff in the ‎universities of Jerusalem and the West Bank. Also, it seeks to uncover the differences in the ‎networking processes between universities from the viewpoint of the teaching staff in the ‎universities of Jerusalem and the West Bank, according to the variables of gender, academic ‎qualification, years of experience, and university. ‎ To achieve the objectives of this study, the researcher used the analytical descriptive ‎approach, in addition to a questionnaire consisted of (35) paragraphs distributed over three fields: ‎teaching and academic exchange, scientific research, community service and continued education. ‎The validity and stability of the questionnaire had been confirmed. The questionnaire is distributed ‎over a sample from the faculty that were chosen randomly from the universities of Jerusalem ‎‎(Sakhnin, Al-Qasimi, Ono, David Yellen) and the West Bank (Arab American University, An-Najah ‎National University, Birzeit, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Al-Ahliyya Palestine, Al-Quds Open, Hebron), ‎numbering (200) individuals. After collecting the data, it was analysed through processing it ‎statistically by (SPSS). ‎ The results of the study indicated that the reality of teaching, academic exchange, scientific ‎research, community service and continuing education from the point of view of the teaching staff ‎in the universities of Jerusalem and the West Bank has come to a large extent. The results also ‎revealed that there were no statistically significant differences in the degree of reality of networking ‎operations between universities from the point of view of the teaching staff in the universities of ‎Jerusalem and the West Bank according to the variable of gender, academic qualification and years ‎of experience. However, the results indicated that there were differences according to the ‎differences among the universities‎‎.
