Beyond reflective learning: enhancing intercultural learning in summer school programmes

This session will explore how we can add value to the international summer school experience by intentionally introducing culturally different teaching approaches into learning outcomes. Using co-teaching, faculty engagement and strong partnership coordination, these short-term learning-abroad activities can go beyond reflecting on what is culturally ‘different’ or ‘interesting’ to foster a deeper understanding of how learning and culture are connected.
