WP3: Internationalisation of the curriculum

Internationalisation of the Curriculum  
The main goal of Work Package 3 is stated as ‘cultivating international orientations and attitudes and encouraging international involvement among faculty, administrators and students in colleges’.

Overall objectives of the 3 WP3 workshops are:
  • To provide an understanding of how international policies and new social and economic contexts of higher education impact/mediate teaching, learning and administrative practices
  • To engage critically with the policy debates and theoretical ideas that underpin teaching, learning and assessment in higher education and relate these to local contexts
  • To articulate the complexities of intercultural communication and relationships and to identify ways to enhance cultural capability
  • To identify the academic and personal support needs of students in global higher education
  • To enable participants to share experiences and apply debates to their own context and practice
    Dr. Sheila Trahar, from University of Bristol, leads the WP. The activities include: three workshops and publication on internationalisation of the curriculum.
