Internationalisation at Home: Transforming Societies

This year’s edition of the Leadership Forum in Higher Education will discuss how Internationalisation at Home transforms societies if strategically implemented. The process positively affects students and staff, the academic institution itself and, in the long run, the society in which it operates and the society to which the international student and staff return.

Learning activities and discussion will focus on:

→ internationalisation of the curriculum;
→ the Global Citizenship concept;
→ academic and administrative staff development.

Seminar

Introduction to Content and Language Integrated Learning in Higher Education

12th of June 2018, Tues., 9.00-17.00

At internationalising universities, non-native English speakers teach in English students, for whom English is not a native language. This seminar explores how, through a culture of collaborative learning and engagement, academic teachers can facilitate sustainable learning of the subject matter, while supporting the acquisition of essential academic English skills with a reflective formative assessment approach proposed by CLIL.

Workshop

Practical aspects of curriculum internationalisation

14th & 15th of June , 2018, Thur. & Fri., 9:00-17.00

Internationalised learning outcomes prepare students for employment in an interconnected world. This workshop provides an overview of the internationalisation of the curriculum by exploring its theoretical frameworks and practical methods in educating global citizens. It explores ways for building engagement and support across their institution, warns about challenges and helps to make strategic choices.

“Internationalisation at Home is the purposeful integration of international and intercultural dimensions into the formal and informal curriculum for all students, within domestic learning environments”.
