Supporting international student learning activities in addition to study-abroad programmes and recognising those activities as vital to cross-cultural learning can be challenging. In this workshop you’ll exchange innovative ideas and practices for granting recognition for students’ participation in a range of international and intercultural activities. You’ll also come away with best practices and lessons learned from Lund University (Sweden) and the University of Bergen (Norway), the pioneers of organising and measuring international activities for a certificate of international merits. Join us to explore the possibilities for developing students’ intercultural competences and furthering your institution’s internationalisation goals.
